Launched MVP

It's amazing what you can accomplish when you set up time and scope constraints. I wanted to quickly put together an MVP built as simply as possible, with the least amount of custom code, minimal features, but functional.

So I set some constraints for myself to build the PodGuest.me MVP: Use just a few plain HTML pages, style with TailwindCSS loaded via CDN (no build setup, to save time), and embedded AirTable so I didn't have to code anything from scratch. No logo, no log in, no marketing page, no revenue model, not even analytics at this point. I just wanted to build the thing and release it into the wild.

I got it all to work in one day and released it into the world. The response was amazing! The first one to post on it was Justin Jackson, and then many others, including the legendary Mubs. I am grateful to all of them.
