Scott Berkun on In Beta

In beta is one of the many shows on the fine 5by5.tv podcasting network which I haven’t been listening regularly however after episode 71 it’s back in my queue. 

What’s so special about it? That episode featured very interesting conversation with Scott Berkun about running a remote team at Automattic (company behind WordPress and Simplenote) . 

If you’re interested in understanding how people can work for the pleasure of it, how you can run a company where everyone (60) works remotely and communicates using fairly simple tools like Skype, IRC and internal blog than this is for you.

I have read couple of Scott’s books and really liked them hence the more reason for me to get this latest book “The year with our a pants” where is goes into greater detail about his 18 months gig with Automattic.
