Shouldn't this be first hired (payed) developer?

Michael Phipps has been the founder (and employee) doing all the work for Haiku, Inc. for a while now... of course, he's not paid afaik.

The boss isn't generally considered an "employee", but the "employer". Even when he does work in his own business.

I'd think he'd be more of a volunteer than an employee - not that that lessens the value of all the work he's done.
