I loved Sacha Chua's interview of Thierry Volpiatto, Emacs Helm maintainer.
Thierry is an outdoorsman -- mountain guide, ski and rock climbing instructor -- someone who prefers his work outdoors to a software worker job.
A comment in the blog says that Helm development is now stalled because of Thierry's commitments and burnout.
