This time on the MicroISV show I'm talking with Eric Sink (blog, MicroISV article on his blog), founder of SourceGear, who coined the term MicroISV in 2004 when he was a columnist for MSDN (Articles: 1, 2, 3).
The discussion ranges from why Eric wrote the articles, the evolution of the term MicroISV, how the longer a career a developer has the motivation to strike out on one's own grows, how the choice of tools can dramatically affect a MicroISV's success, and Eric's own experience as a MicroISV.
Finally, Eric gives his advice on what to do if you're thinking about becoming a MicroISV.
