Hey Marco, I just watched your video. I'm looking for a developer. I have an amazing app idea. I'm not sure how to protect my idea before speaking to a developer so they cant steal my idea. Do you have any pointers for me?

Donatus Orth says:

People like him sound as if money was just there to pay for groceries and everything else and it was just a hobby of him to program and release projects to the public. Did he earn so much at tumblr that he can do whatever he wants?
