BENJAMIN: Anything important, I hear from my wife. So, I could finally have that thing where Facebook doesn’t infiltrate my mind with cat pictures anymore.
JAMISON: Howdy Doody!
CHUCK: I’m Charles Max Wood from devchat.tv and this week, we have a special guest and that’s Benjamin Lupton.
CHUCK: He is the author of history.js and why don’t you introduce yourself? Because that’s all I really know about you other than history.js and you are many time zones away.
CHUCK: Ooh. A front end and a back end person.
BENJAMIN: Only because I’m Node.
JAMISON: You are basically like a unicorn.
JAMISON: You are a mystical creature.
CHUCK: You are too well rounded. You are going to put us to shame.
BENJAMIN: Well, it’s easier being with Node.
CHUCK: Yeah, that’s true.
JAMISON: Yeah it’s true. Where do you work?
CHUCK: Oh, cool. How do you manage going full time open source?
BENJAMIN: Right now, we’ve got premium support. I’m going with a few companies and we are looking into other options as well.
CHUCK: Right. Yeah. I’m in the same boat with my podcast. I’d love to go full time podcast and less full time consulting.
JAMISON: So the real question is, if I pay you enough money, will you put a gigantic ASCII art picture of my face in the History.js source code?
JAMISON: Okay. We’ll have to talk after.
CHUCK: I’m going to have to figure out how to do that. Let’s see… Image to ASCII art…
BENJAMIN: In podcast.
CHUCK: Yeah and then I’ll…
JAMISON: Oh Chuck, you could do it so there’s face that shows up like in the waveforms on the sounds.
CHUCK: [laughs] I don’t know about that.
