Daniel is a well-known blogger among Mac developers, and has developed several interesting desktop applications for Mac users. But MarsEdit is on a different level of prominence than the programs Daniel has developed himself, and should drive substantial growth for his software business.
I posted a comment on Daniel's blog saying that growth through acquisition is especially unusual among solo developers, for no other reason than the substantial capital investment it requires. But if any product represents a safe bet, it's MarsEdit, which was first developed by Brent Simmons and became part of NewsGator after NewsGator purchased Brent Simmons' company. And Daniel is an extremely skilled developer: it's safe to assume that he will be adding a lot of cool features to MarsEdit, making it even better than ever.
