Description

Jon and Justin discuss:

  • Good mics for podcasters. Justin recommends the Samson Q2U and the ATR2100. Make sure you get a pop filter!

  • Starting our 6-week cycle (based on Basecamp's Shape Up)

  • Working through unknowns for software projects: "Where do we start?"

  • What's it been like being a transparent startup? Is it still a good idea?

  • "It feels less and less comfortable, and I don't know why." – Jon

  • "All people see is the revenue numbers; they don't understand what's happening underneath those numbers." – Justin

  • "Wait a second. Bootstrapped startups are different: the goal isn't to change the way people behave, it's to recognize where people are already in motion."

  • How long should you work on an idea before you quit?
