While it’s clearly a work in progress, we wanted to note that the founding ethos here is the Lean Startup mode, in which we try to move fast and work toward being perfect, not wait to do something until it’s perfect. The perfect, after all, is the enemy of the good.

Here are some excerpts from a blog post by Paul Hontz at The Startup Foundry that came across the radar today, with some ideas about how we’re doing what we’re doing.

“Every startup is going to make stupid mistakes that seem blatantly obvious in retrospect. Don’t let this scare you.”
