The Developer's Union

This is great. A bunch of iOS and Mac developers—led by Brent Simmons, Jake Schumacher, Loren Morris, and Roger Ogden—have banded together to lobby Apple for making some much-needed improvements for developers. It’s important to note that it’s not just a bunch of complaining, but reasonable, community-driven requests starting with support for free trials for iOS. There’s already over 200 apps and 200 people joining in.

It’s sad that something like this is needed, but encouraging to see a grassroots approach to soliciting change. Kudos.
