John Gruber & Merlin Mann’s Blogging Panel at SxSW 2009

Merlin Mann:

My pal, John Gruber (from, and I presented a talk at South by Southwest Interactive on Saturday, March 14th. We talked about building a blog you can be proud of, trying to improve the quality of your work, reaching the people you admire, and maybe even making a buck (in a way that doesn’t blow your deal).

John Gruber:

My muse for the session was this quote from Walt Disney:“We don’t make movies to make money, we make money to make more movies.” To me, that’s it. That’s the thing.

Listen this podcast, it’s a great talk.
