Interview with Ryan Stansky from Squarespace
This week Frederick sat down with Ryan Stansky from Squarespace to chat about how they were able to maintain 100% uptime during the recent Hurricane Sandy disaster in New York City. Frederick and Ryan also talk about Wordpress vs Squarespace… and why you'd choose one or the other. Plus, Ryan reveals their newest feature – Commerce – which will allow Squarespace users to setup a webstore and sell items on their websites.

Wouldn’t comparing SquareSpace to WordPress.com or WPEngine instead of WordPress.org/self-hosting be a fairer comparison?
Hi Doug, maybe… but considering all that Squarespace can do it’s more akin (IMO) to a self-hosted blog/site. WordPress.org is very limited in terms of customization options.
Always enjoy Bruce Clarke episodes, but the best part of this episode was that Don Komarechka was not a host.
A nice Don Komarechka free episode. My favorite.
Good episode and Don Komarechka free as a bonus.
Any episode without Don Komarechka is a good episode.
Is the second part of the Squarespace interview coming soon? It wasn’t in the show.
I have recently had 2 of the USpeed Card Readers recommended. They both have had a very short life span. They each worked fine for a few weeks and then stopped working.
To get around high noon I have a couple cameras converted to Infra Red. The large amounts of IR in high sun hours produce fun images. So neat with white trees and grass with adjusted IR images!
Is there a place where we can download the TWIP podcast as audio file? The episode #294 is not downloading in iTunes
bring back Aaron Mahler sometime…. we need to hear from some advanced amateurs occasionally.
Good thinking Johnny B. More Aaron Mahler and give Don Komarechka the boot.
