Fog Creek

What's the deal with Fog Creek? Is it very profitable? I assume it's stable, but with all of Joel's elitist talk, you'd think he cornered  the entire software market.

How much does Joel take home? Where is his 7-series? When will I read about him on the front page of the Journal?

He writes pretty good software. It's not ground-breaking, but still pretty good. Is that it? Just what is it that makes him an authority?

My small software company does pretty well, but I have no business telling the entire country of India how to use commas.

Of course, I still only drive the 5-series.

What's the deal?

Dunno, but here's his resume

I wonder if he still cycles as much as he used to. I've been slipping in my cycling habits lately.

He writes software  articles in a way most people understand.

Damn, dude looks about 30 lbs thinner, so I'd guess not as much cycling:

Well if you drill down in the old personal page a little more you can see pictures of his "summer home". Perhaps not as scientific a measure of business success as a 7 series, but offered as people's exhibit number two.  Of course it could be the result of Jared's income, so who knows?

Given this sentance:

"Last September I started a new software company."

I doubt this house is a result of the income from Fog Creek, it's probably from his Microsoft/Juno stock options or something along those lines.

From what he's said about Fog Creek, it pays the bills.

not compared to a time share in oklahoma, but judging those photos, if he paid more than $2000 a month, he was had.

Ahhh, it's all in one's frame of reference then.

I'd rather have a 5 (M5)  than a 7-series
