#FollowDJFriday - How to Start a Startup in 30 Minutes - Chapter 7

this raises two questions... or rather.. some new experiments... levels to cross.. mind you.. this is a bot.. an AI.. my greatest fear is going to sleep and it crashing things... limits.. it's not what we CAN do.. it's what we shouldn't do.. #ethics in the manipulation of technology.

IF you had the power to influence an algo, would you do the wrong thing?
Most business people would answer: "How much money?" -

actual IRL example:

Prospective Customer: "..for 10 million could you legally crash a system for me?
Me: "No...."
Me:  "Wait.. two conditions.. A: waiver from business owner B. financial impact analysis from disruption of system. Can we get those?"

Many times my answer is no.. until I think about it... the book "How to Start a Startup in 30 Minutes" is the ideas that instead of saying no... i said yes and tried to solve problems...

What is #FollowDJFriday? What is the purpose or process? Who is the "audience"? Who are the customers? Is it a B2B or B2C type of company? Do you have proof of concept? (yes)

Revenue: $$$$$$
Debt: $$$

Product, Process or People? - Process..

What is a unicorn? A post-2010 tech company that was raised in the shadow of quantitative easing and low interest rates when bored capital let private companies not go public — consider it something of a corporate adolescence. Oh, and they are worth a billion or more on paper.
