It's nice to see Marco Arment pursuing another fine example of the Patio11-esque approach of building a minimum viable product in his spare time, gradually improving and expanding it while keeping the day job, growing his userbase, and then smoothly transitioning into making it a full-time gig, all without talk of crazy hours, scrambling for investors, or even subsistence on ramen.

Obviously this doesn't work for every kind of startup, but it's great to see it working where it can.

Don't compare him to Patrick or he'll be next on lionhearted's chopping block!
