I saw Duncan Moore at a cafÃ© the other day. We chatted about bootstrapping and some new projects. He looked excited, and I offered up a great presentation on the subject I had seen by one of the 37signals guys*.
Later he left, and sent this out to his Twitter stream, below.
Here’s the great thing that most people don’t do: If you’re ever thankful for something, it’s great to put it on paper like Duncan did for everyone to see. The person who helped (me) will see it, and the broadcast (tweet, blog post, whatever) will be an added benefit that will be seen by others.
Those of us that are online, those for whom the web is an important place, where we try to do business, these references matter to us because they’re seen by everyone. A public reference is worth a ton, especially when it’s accompanied by a link (which is hard to get these days). If you can tweet AND link, that’s even better.
So if you’ve ever done this for me (or anyone else), thank you. Really. And let me know if I ever should have done it for you! 🙂
