Sounds promising!

How to incorporate a remote company?

@fredrikaurdal and @bchilakala are spot on. You should typically incorporate in the country where you do most of the work. Also agree on talking to a tax advisor. This is the type of thing you want to do right from the beginning, because changing stuff later is a lot harder and more costly.

Nice. Did you reach out to them yet? Curious if you got any feedback

Tweets on building in public. I'm experimenting with daily tweets on #BuildInPublic for April-May 2021 and sharing my learnings

Yes I did I spoke with 5 people as of today. Tho 1 of them I stumble on via Twitter so he’s not added on to the wait list. Strangely he spoke with me the longest. Nearly 3 hrs

Waitlist is now 8 people long

How do you post your todo?

Yep, me and a couple of friends do that a lot. Kinda depends on the types of todos we're working on.

What are some of the best practices for implementing magic links?

Some great tips. Thanks for sharing! Will probably implement it this way in the future.

Option to make our profile private and visible only to community members ?

Thanks for comment!

It's still on my radar, but it's a complicated feature to build (it breaks a lot of assumptions in the current codebase). So it's good to know how many people are interested in it 👍

What topics would you like to discuss during our weekly voice calls?

I like that idea. Instead of having a specific topic like sales, we can target specific type of makers/businesses that face specific challenges.

In addition to the ones you mentioned, some other ideas:

  • E-commerce
  • Content / publishing (e.g. BetaList)
  • Enterprise-oriented
  • Platform-based (e.g. built on top of Shopify, etc)
  • Mobile-first / mobile apps
  • Marketplaces
  • Browser extensions (e.g. Grammarly)
Reading newsletters

I tend to use RSS for subscribing to blogs, etc whenever possible. If there's a newsletter without an RSS feed I might read it in Fastmail if it's shorter content or interactive (e.g. lots of links I might want to check out), or send it to Instapaper so I can read it on my Kindle if it's long-form.

Personally I wouldn't want to add yet another app to my daily workflow.
