I would just like to summarize the post below: I made money out of thin air while I was sleeping. Thank you.

  1. Heh, it’s not “made” until you sell those virtual assets to someone 😉

    Also, I was re-reading this PG essay tonight and it reminded of your previous post about (not liking) the “business” aspects of starting a business.

    So why were we afraid? We felt we were good at programming, but we lacked confidence in our ability to do a mysterious, undifferentiated thing we called “business.” In fact there is no such thing as “business.” There’s selling, promotion, figuring out what people want, deciding how much to charge, customer support, paying your bills, getting customers to pay you, getting incorporated, raising money, and so on. And the combination is not as hard as it seems, because some tasks (like raising money and getting incorporated) are an O(1) pain in the ass, whether you’re big or small, and others (like selling and promotion) depend more on energy and imagination than any kind of special training.

    Damn.. I’m starting to feel like a YC-funded spammer ﺟ_ﺟ
