Rank #1: Episode 9: Rusty Meadows
Well you’re in luck, because today’s guest, Rusty Meadows, is just the guy you want to talk to. Rusty is the founder of the Nearly Impossible conference, an event for people who make and sell physical products that’s set to take place this November 7th and 8th in Brooklyn. The event is geared towards sharing stories about overcoming the hurdles we all face when trying to bring our ideas to life. Rusty’s experience comes from his role as manager of Tattly, the designy temporary tattoo company that celebrated it’s second birthday earlier this year.

Rank #5: Episode 14: FiftyThree
FiftyThree has brought this same philosophy to their first hardware product, called Pencil. Pencil is a stylus designed to compliment Paper, and just like Paper, it eliminates pro features, making way for more natural feeling ones - like an eraser and probably the smartest take on a blending tool ever.

ve probably seen the name “Yo!” pop up on the Discussions boards and writing the occasional article on the main page. Yo! happens to be the alias of our good friend, Michael DiTullo.
