Did we solve our bandwidth cost crisis?
And, our accountant might be a socialist ;)
Jon and Justin share their progress on:
- The bandwidth / CDN cost problem (and how it might affect our profitability).
- Marco Arment: "It would cost them probably thousands of dollars a month in bandwidth and CDN costs to host our show."
- We made a decision on whether we'll take investment now. (Hats off to Earnest Capital, TinySeed, and Indie.VC for offering such great options!)
- Should founders use their savings to fund their company? What about credit cards?
- When should we start hiring people?
- What about government-funded community loans for startups? ~9% interest.
- Nathan Barry: "You should get a loan when you don’t need it because once you do it won’t be available."
- Our accountant might be a socialist. ;)
- Can you really "build something out of nothing?"
