AJ - more famously known on Twitter as @AJLKN is a mysterious dude. No one knows his full name and his social media accounts all display the infamous Johnny Mnemonic helmet shot image. What we do know about AJ is that he ships product like a bat outta hell. In 2008 he starting HTML5UP, a free website template resource that just clocked 12 million downloads. A few years later he launched Pixelarity, the premium version of HTML5UP offering almost 100 website templates, all attribution free, for only $19. This paved the way for his biggest project to date, Carrd - an online website builder allowing anyone to create a simple One Page website for them or their products - completely free. I wanted the Yo! Podcast to spotlight people who are contributing to a better web and there is honestly no one I'd rather kick things off than AJ. We rap about the dangers of complacency, the good corners of Twitter, his unexpected KPOP community, pricing a SAAS service and the importance of being offline. I hope you enjoy the interview!
