My Pledge to Use Non Acquired Companies

TechStars 08 I love startups.  I love knowing the founders, promoting the companies, writing about them, finding bugs, and just about everything else startup.  I love how three millionaires still owe me $20 from when they were broke.

But I realized something the other day.  Most startups die because their are a lack of passionate users.

Fair enough.  I’ve run a few projects where after a few months only a handful of users were active.  One of the most frustrating situations I have ever been in.  I’ve looked at my habits as of late, and realized that I don’t support as many small companies as I think I should.

So here is my pledge: if you have a web app out there, I want to use it.  While doing this, I will do my best to be as useful to your project or company as possible.  I will report bugs or write about my experience it.

I’ve realized how obsessed I am with user iterations with web apps.  Time for my actions to reflect my views.

Go ahead and contact me, I will be a poweruser in no time.

  • Great point, Andrew. Like many geeks, I have the tendency to quickly try a bunch of new services and might not take the time to fully utilize them or participate in their community. It's a habit worth changing.

  • Cool. Have you seen my twtapps? http://twtapps.com/ Some of them can be quite useful. Always welcoming feedback!

    How is Boulder? Getting a lot of snow? I wish I had stayed for the Winter. 🙁 But I'm getting my share of snow up here in Montreal too.

    Take care,

    Felipe

    That sounds like its own full time job, but it warms the heart to hear you say that!

  • Speaking of non-acquired companies, who ARE those handsome devils in the photo on your blog!?
