Joel Spolsky says he quits his blog

In his most recent posting about distributed version control, in the final paragraph, Joel calls it a day….

I seem to have run out the clock on this site. It has been an extreme honor to have you reading my essays over the last ten years. I couldn’t ask for a greater group of readers.

I thank Joel for his contributions to the software engineering community. His blog has been of great inspiration to me, especially concerning non-technical aspects of software engineering and running a software business. Sure, I did not always agree with everything but over the years I have learned that when he puts forward a concept or an idea it is usually well-founded and pretty darn hard to argue with :)

He is one of those writers that can make you aware consciously of things you sort of knew intuitively but couldn’t explain to anyone else. If you’re unfamiliar with his blog, spend a few hours on it today. His posts are nicely categorized by team roles (see the right-hand column on the homepage) so there’s bound to be something there for you.
