I sent two very harsh emails to startups yesterday - both had solicited feedback.
The number one thing you have to bear in mind is NO ONE KNOWS WHAT YOUR PRODUCT IS!
You've spent the last few years living & breathing it, with people who share your vision. The average customer hasn't.
They take one quick look at your site, with its crazy name & inspirational logo. If they can't find what you you do & what you cost within a minute, they leave.
Don't be clever, or coy, or subtle.
Getting prepped for my visit to 北京！
Bit of touristing, lots of meetings, hopefully enough veggie food. And Mastodon, of course!
Any Chinese Tooters out there?
I bloody loved #DrWho - cracking start to the new season. Lovely foreshadowing of a story arc as well.
I only wish it was shown in the he autumn and winter rather than bright spring evenings. Makes it more scary. But then, I suppose, there wouldn't be an Xmas special.
@torgo so, do we need an official Mastodon instance for the W3C?
Got to be more accessible than IRC, right?
DOCTOR WHO IS ON TONIGHT!
NO, I WILL NOT STOP SHOUTING.
TELL YOUR FRIENDS!
People who don't live in the UK - how much do you pay to charge electric cars in public?
It used to be free in the UK as companies built up their networks. Now they're trying to charge and making a complete mess of it!
So many different, complicated tariffs for what amounts to £2.50 worth of electricity.
Every company wants me to sign up for a monthly tariff and give me a smart card or app.
All *I* want is to drive up, plug in, and tap my credit card.
What's your country like?
I've got a blog! https://shkspr.mobi/blog/
