Earlier this year, I launched two ongoing classes on Skillshare:
One is on the thinking necessary to invent and launch a new business
and the other is for marketers of all kinds.
I'm grateful to everyone who has posted a kind review, launched a useful new project or shared the course so far…
But mostly, I want to thank the people at Skillshare: the software does exactly what they promised, and they're kind and a delight to work with.
Yesterday, Typepad was assaulted by a DDOS attack that brought the service to its knees. The team there really rose to the occasion, communicated clearly and honestly and got this blog up and running quickly. I've had this blog hosted by them for a decade or so, and despite the cool kids telling me I have to move it, I like the fact that the software does just what they say and that they're kind and a delight to work with.
And finally, did you know that you can subscribe to this blog, for free, by email and RSS? The email is handled daily and flawlessly by Feedblitz. It does what it's supposed to, and Phil is kind and a pleasure to work with.
Sometimes, the biggest, flashiest, most annoying services aren't the best way to build something that works. I'm grateful to these organizations and those like them that show up regularly and make things work. Thanks.
