Yes, for some reason so many people (especially customer support agents and randoms on LinkedIn) call me “Kendall” now. Pretty concerning re: lack of attention to detail. They still do it after I correct them too!

This thread is more interesting than most books.

Not long until the inaugural demo day for . Will have to do an obligatory Medium post on learnings from running an accelerator geared towards indie/bootstrapped founders soon. 🙌

Starting a business teaches you how to get things done with very little. Growing a business teaches you how to be data-informed. Scaling a business teaches you about yourself. You’ll never stop learning.

Thanks. I drew from Tech Inclusion Conference, and the open source code of conduct that inclusion conferences use. Thought it was weird they were advocating copy paste as leaders in the field, and as a solo organizer followed suite. PS. If you’re in Melbs, would love you to come.

Would love to bring it back – the platform is there, just needs updating and relaunching!

However, I was recently on the other side trying to dispute an Airtasker charge with my CBA credit card. Turns out they have a special agreement where they automatically nullify disputes (unless fraud). Very frustrating – only got told after I’d spent days on the dispute docs.

In large tech companies, they have dedicated dispute teams and write off large amounts of disputes as a cost of doing business. It’s amazing.

Wood is also very expensive! We have already used a fifth of our latest supply (and the supply was around $450). Hopefully, we’re getting a gas heater installed in a few weeks (once we have a gas line to the house installed).

Do you mean corporate in terms of enterprise or SMEs? Agree with the latter and Squarespace have their own marketplace for this. For corporates, still think they need more customization, security, and scale considerations.

Congrats! There so much potential growth left to go still too. Google Reviews should be a company’s non-website face online: comprehensive, open data, user-generated submissions, robust imagery, trust scores, and network effects. Would love to see them replace Facebook Pages.

This is so true. When hiring, I notice people with remote experience had a greater understanding of geography, culture, localization approaches, global contacts/networks, increased market awareness, and more. It builds empathy and knowledge.

Is anyone else a Google Reviews (and Maps) power user? (I’m currently a Local Guide Level 6 with 1500 points. My photo submissions have had 140,000 views.) I love supporting local businesses and also, in a non-Black Mirror way, use the review data set daily to inform where I go.

One disservice we pay ourselves in the tech industry is the binary belief in success and failure. Everything (and everyone) is either a complete success or an abject failure. Startups are messy Fundraising is messy Exits are messy Hiring/Managing is messy Life is messy.
