    Forget App.net (value proposition: none) - the in-app purchases economy is at somewhere north of $20 billion dollars.

    People already understand how valuable a Facebook-like network is. Give them a Facebook-like network that doesn't suck (<-- hard part!) and enough of them will pay for photo storage, etc. to keep the lights on.

    What Aral and Co. care about is independence - they aren't trying to do away with money.

    Obviously a social network without ads will charge users, and that's a model I think the world is ready for.

    As for getting started, there are so many ways to raise money without offering equity these days I'm not going to list them ;)

    FYI, the scrolling on the product page is unpleasantly janky for me in Chrome.

    Yes, but I also collect videos to document UI effects and no tool I've tried is easier, faster, or more effective than my phone's camera.

    With any screen capture tool you have to think about frame rate, showing/hiding the cursor, keeping the activity to a predetermined section of your screen, etc. It's the cognitive opposite of point & shoot.

    The wobbly factor does suck though - I think my videos are a little better than these, after a lot of trial and error.

    I use TeuxDeux, in a Fluid app that's pinned to my menubar with a custom icon. Also, iPhone.

    That's my daily agenda, in GTD speak, while Trello is where tasks are managed across projects.

    I love Bourbon, but I also appreciate the useful components that come with Bootstrap and Foundation (forms, collapsing nav, js behaviors, etc).

    I came across this: http://thoughtbot.github.io/bourbon_ui_smash/ but I don' t think it's being maintained.

    In reality, I don't use 90% of the components in Bootstrap or Foundation. But knowing I can lean on them in a pinch informs my decision when I choose a framework. Just saying.
