Interviewing developers is always such a huge pile of BS. It's like interviewing songwriters, all you get is BS because they themselves don't have a clue until inspiration or their muse graces them and then they have to have the chops to mold that into something of value.
So this guy is still floundering around, his creativity or muse has not returned, so it's BS to cover his ass until he hopes he can stumble on a good idea, or steal someone else's.
So many X <= 5 hit wonders out there.
