About the Show

This is BizCraft, the podcast about the business side of web design, recorded live almost every two weeks. Your hosts are Carl Smith (@carlsmith) of nGen Works and Gene Crawford (@genecrawford) of UnmatchedStyle.

In this episode we take questions from:

Ben Reynolds – @theamazingben
I’ve seen several blog posts lately on the topic of “best things to include in your contract”. A common one is defining intellectual property rights. What rights are better to keep for yourself, and which for the client? Is a client more likely to be hesitant to sign if you retain all rights?

Stuff in the news (FWIW)

Google acquires iOS and Mac mail client Sparrow for Gmail team, apps to get bug fixes, but no new features
First Thunderbird, now Sparrow? We need e-mail clients, please
iOS mail client Sparrow acquired by Google for $25 million

Let’s Kill the UX Department – on .Net Magazine by Chad Vavra
