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?

  • 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?"
