Launched to #1 on HN, #2 on PH

I wrote MDWA over two glasses of wine on a Sunday afternoon, and bought the domain after an undisclosed number of glasses more.

A day later, it trended on the very top of Hacker News and Product Hunt. I put zero thought into marketing or growth. I hadn't even set up analytics yet.

This is a great example of how not to launch while being wildly successful.
