I have reached the "writing a 4 chapter philosophical treatise on the nature of identity and why I exist" part of the pandemic.
record scratches, camera freezes, etc.
So how did I get here? well when @mike and @kev wrote about why they blog and then started #100DaysToOffload, I tried to write a quick summary of why I write a blog. But then that turned into why do I do anything, and the whole project snowballed, and 3ish weeks later I have described my "reasons."
Hello Mastodon! I have a request.
I'm trying to find a cafe that openly publishes their operating budget online. Has anyone ever heard of that?
Why? It's been my brother's and my dream to create a non-profit coop-type cafe that compensates workers fairly and keeps prices fair too. To do this I want to make some way for the whole org to be totally open. I've assumed that something like this must exist, but I just haven't ever been able to find it through a search engine or word of mouth.
Making #apps that respect privacy is important, but if we want everyone from our kids to grandparents to use them, there needs to be a stellar user experience.
Not only does it need to be on-par with "the other" websites that everyone uses, the UX actually needs to be better.
Respect for the user's needs and desires is paramount to gain widespread adoption.
Shared a milestone on IndieHackers: Plausible Analytics now has more than 100 paying customers! May has been pretty crazy so far with 3 people on average per day deciding to de-Google-ify their sites and become Plausible.io paying customers 😲
