Why I don’t ‘do’ Enterprise Software

Jason Fried has a nice article on ‘Why Enterprise Software Sucks‘ with which I agree entirely.For the last 10 years I’ve worked entirely on projects that individuals use – indeed the lack of the individual focus was why I left two previous employers. If I decide to move on from my current position I suspect that a shift away from focusing on the individual will be part of the reason why.One of the great things about the iOnTV project is that it’s entirely individually focused and I think this is also a driving force behind many of the ‘indie’ developers out there today for the Mac. I really don’t think Gus Mueller had the large art department in mind when he wrote Acorn, and Wil Shipley clearly doesn’t design Delicious Library for ‘libraries’. Both of these folks (and so many, many more) are focused entirely on the individual.
