As I build up and scale the backend I’ve also been jotting down my thoughts on gawk.it the business throughout the summer…what follows are a few of those quick thoughts/notes.
Why share this stuff?
Well first, I believe in being as clear and open as possible.
Second, I’m hoping that by sharing these sort of details, those that are interested in the work I’m doing around gawk.it, might also be interested in having an open conversation around the business of it all as well. And these sorts of details and posts can be the spark of those conversations.
So without further ado, here’s some random questions and my current answers around the business of gawk.it:
