    You know what I would find very interesting.... How SitePoint built it's root, and what problems / successes they encountered in their climb, and what they have planned for the future. It sure seems like a strong group, who are battling through the regression of sorts on the internet.
    Mark or Matt? What's the story, it's got to be a good one!

    It's a great story! One that is probably best told in audio. Perhaps it's time for SitePoint radio

    In the meantime if you guys want to prepare a list of questions, myself and Matt would be happy to answer them and publish them as an 'interview' style article on SitePoint.

    At while ago I emailed Matt asking if he'd be willing to spare a few minutes to reply to some questions so I could post the interview on my site, but replied stating he was too busy.

    I should have gotten back to him about it. I look forward to reading it when it's finished.

    Interview I did awhile back:

    http://www.ibizinterviews.com/mattm1.htm

    It answers alot of questions.

    I'll probably be doing some in-person presentations here in Vancouver, BC telling my story in the next few months.

    When was that interview held?

    Who in the world does an interview without stamping the date on it? I can't beleive ibizInterviews.com did that!

    According to their archives, it was held in November of 2000. However it deals with the history of SitePoint and the answers are still valid today.

    We are shortly releasing a feature film based on how SitePoint got off the ground, and how we've managed to remain profitable through the current slump in the high-tech market. Of course, for reasons of protecting the people involved, we have changed all the names around and taken a bit of artistic license with certain plot points.

    The movie is called "Swordfish", starring John Travolta. Look for it in a theatre near you this June.

    Kevin and myself were the ghostwriters for the script... Watch the movie carefully and you'll see lots of hidden references to SitePoint and its early beginnings.

    I'm the guy standing by the bus stop in scene 42.

    You're Travolta? Pisha! Hugh Jackman is one of the coolest guys around.
