Patrick McKenzie is the author of MicroISV on a Shoestring, a blog focused on running small software businesses (where ISV stands for Independent Software Vendor). Or to put it in Patrick's words "you know, one of us folks selling software over the Internet as we lounge around at home in our pyjamas."

Patrick started his blog to accompany the project that launched his entrepreneurial career, Bingo Card Creator ( He was an english teacher (among many other things) and really hated having to waste time prepping for classes when he could be helping students. One activity he loved, but which took an hour of his life every time he ran it, was vocabulary bingo. Patrick figured there had to be a better way to do this so he created a program and decided it might actually be worth something to other people too. He then opened a business to sell his software and his blog followed shortly afterwards to chronicle his experiences in more-or-less real time.
