In our ongoing series of interviews with developers and creators in the Apple community, I had the chance to talk with John Siracusa.
John is well known in the Apple community for his detailed OS X reviews and other articles published on Ars Technica. He co-hosted a podcast called Hypercritical for
100 (98) episodes with 5by5's Dan Benjamin, and he also shares some of his thoughts on tech, games, and pasta on a blog with the same name. On Twitter, you can find John as @siracusa.
The interview below was conducted over email between January 3 and January 15, 2013.
Federico Viticci: Hey John, could you introduce yourself to the readers who haven’t heard about you before?
John Siracusa: Though I've spent my career as a web developer, I'm better known on the Internet for my articles at Ars Technica, especially my very long and detailed reviews of OS X going back 13 years, and for my podcast, Hypercritical, which just ended its two-year run. I'm also a regular guest on The Incomparable, a podcast about geeky books, movies, TV shows, comics, and video games.
