"I'm A Mac Programmer; and a Mac User. And We are Arrogant People"

“I’m a Mac programmer, and a Mac user, and we are arrogant people. And we love beauty.”

I've never been a guest on a podcast before, so my hour talking to the guys on DotNetRocks was one of the more interesting things I've done all year. And it is amazing what came out of my mouth, including the above quote.

This was in context of my describing the cloudy future of cross-platform development and how I was uninterested in any development strategy that didn't involve using Cocoa for the GUI on the Mac. I don't know that I've ever used the word arrogant to describe something positive before, perhaps a better word would have been demanding, but then again maybe it was the right word.

I'll put up a note when they post the show in the coming weeks.
