#1 on Hacker News for hours


I wrote my second blog post[0] ever and ended up in the #1 slot on Hacker News for a few hours[1] in the middle of the day yesterday.

It was...unexpected. I guess the failed startup story resonates with a lot HN readers. I've been told the comments roast me to a crisp (haven't had the courage to read them myself), but the best part is that I was inundated with emails from people giving me words of encouragement, offering advice, or wanting to team up.

Anyway, I'm betting the HN/IH Venn diagram overlaps quite a bit, but if you haven't already you should read the post! Hopefully you can learn something while laughing at my blunders.
