Why "stupid" projects are worth doing

James @Bangkokian

This is a great read on how simple, 1-day web apps can sometimes generate insane traffic -- and are worth doing.

    Nice read James

    Seems like it was most worth doing for the writer in just learning how to find a viral topic to make a product for.

      yup. i made this. i have zero experience in actually making something go "viral" myself so it was just an experiment in testing my intuition. i've never "launched" anything before of my own.

      if this was an actual product, i would've had a simple crud app or a landing page. as the saying goes, never build without validating.

      Hmmm..
