And that is a Very good development. It is an ironic echo of the first
Internet boom/bubble: Utility, and not business model, really is the
most important thing. At least for Shiny, Cool Things.
I still can't give up on a business model off the bat however, probably
leading me down the wrong path. On the other hand, bootstrapping with a
full-time job is so much less stress.
