  • Posted to Team Voice: How not to bootstrap as a solo founder, in reply to Nico Serdeir , Dec 08, 2017

    Yeah the problem is it lacks depth. The advice is barely actionable, because it just scratched the surface.

    I'm not sure this is a good Failory, they quit before they even really started.

    Very, very impressive work.

    Yeah that's probably true. It also is kinda silly that this site, which is ultimately hers to do whatever the hell she wants, warrants this much criticism. Mine included.

    I think in a lot of creative industries, there is this sentiment of "It should be about the work or it's bullshit" thing going on, and I too often fall into this camp. It's your life and your decisions to do as you please, as long as they aren't harmful to others. Too often we police each others behavior to make sure it falls within the status quo.

    This is a very nice looking site, but I will echo that it feels more like a personal/photography/modeling site.

    The work is almost down at the bottom, which seems strange to me.

    Looks like they're struggling. If you go to their homepage and try and click on any of the links to stories, it fails in chrome complaining of too many redirects.

    This is pretty fascinating.

    Is there any overview of the Spectrum UI changes that are rolling out to new products? I'd really love to see a deep dive into that.

    I think you're taking a marketing message and turning into something it's not.

    They're just saying that their product helps people to get familiar with the tool your building, so that they can get value out of it faster/quicker.

  • Posted to How I became an Illustrator by discovering a new dimension, in reply to Todd Sieling , Oct 18, 2017

    Totally agree. This was great.

    It's actually a useful and practical guide on making isometric illustrations.

    Very small. Tiny almost. I don't think you'd confuse them with a traditional SV VC, which is why they avoid the term on their website (and position themselves as an alternative). One of their investments makes handmade bottles.

    I don't know what else I'd want from DN. It's pretty feature complete and mature for my purposes. I'd guess they have one or two engineers doing part-time stuff at this point, fixing bugs and improving existing features. Otherwise, I just want them to focus on community, which is the most important part.
