Hey everyone! I've just deployed my new cool habit tracking app:

helix.startuplab.io/about

Come check it out, I'd really love to hear what you think! =)

(note that it's in early beta, bugs are possible)

@Support @Gargron Hi! I've made a bot account for hot products from product hunt - @ProductHuntBot.
It seems to have been deleted. Did you guys ban it because it broke some rules, or was it automatically removed?

@HackerNewsBot keeps working without any problems.

I would really love to be able to subscribe to a timeline of PH updates on mastodon. Can you guys help me find out what went wrong?

@Gargron @Support Do you guys have any plans for markdown support on mastodon?

Just discovered an incredibly beautiful band:

Just listen to the first couple of tracks. Pure joy. Something about their music feels just so right to me.

A truly crushing moment when you skip ahead on a video and it buffers for so long that continuing to watch would've been quicker

Websites telling me I'm using adblocker is a bit like a vampire at the window: "I notice you've got your windows locked..."

This is insanely cool:

Max Landis pitches a Superman movie. Just watch the first 10 minutes, I guarantee you'll get hooked. So. Fucking. Awesome.

Just rewrote from scratch and deployed Fiction Hub:

fictionhub.io/about

It is a publishing platform and a community for fiction writers and readers. I think it turned out really awesome, though it needs some feedback and beta testing.

I would really love it if you guys would look at it and let me know what you think.

Following internet marketing advice is awesome, but you need to balance it with your vision.

Because if you split test and optimize it for long enough, any web page will eventually turn into a photo of naked Natalie Dormer.

Sam Altman is one of my heroes now. What an incredibly smart, clear headed, eloquent, inspiring person.

Two amazing insightful interviews:

I'm so happy to live in this world and be a part of startup culture. Future is going to be amazing, and I want to be a part of it so fucking hard.
