Dr. Arnold Kim apparently quitted his day job a couple of weeks ago, but I just learned about it in a New York Times piece on him. Kim is the owner of MacRumors, a popular blog about Apple stuff, and a great one at that, with 4.4 million readers monthly according to Quantcast.
The NYT article is a nice inspirational read, with some nice quotes from Kim, and some good advice as well. Funny thing is, Kim is a doctor already pulling in decent money, so the step is really interesting in principle.
Check out the NYT article, and wish him luck! I’m pretty sure MacRumors will be even better because of this.
