Just wanted to share a recent experience:
TL;RD: I meet Craig Raw in person. He's the only dev for Sparrow. I was absolutely shocked to learn this. For me, a lowly bitpleb, it felt like meeting a celebrity.
Was at the BitDevs Tuesday meeting in Nashville last week. It was amazing, but that's for another discussion. During the meeting, I noticed a face and a voice that I recognized but couldn't place. This individual spoke up after someone had raised a question/issue related to Sparrow (my personal favorite application). I thought: wait, why do I know that voice/face? To confirm my suspicion, I pulled up a video on YouTube on my phone to confirm... yup... that's a developer for Sparrow I saw on a YT video explaining the features of Sparrow. Amazing, he's in the same room as me.
After the meet, I went up to him to shake his hand and say 'thanks' for the awesome app. It literally has changed my life (again, for another discussion). So as I approached I asked "are you a developer working with the Sparrow team?" or something to that effect, to which he replied "I'm the **only ** developer of Sparrow."
This absolutely blows my mind. The power the Bitcoin, bitcoin, and BTC. One single person can provide such incredible power and autonomy to individuals who wish to take their financial sovereignty to the next level.
Special thanks to Craig Raw for tolerating a noob such as myself.
