Mark had a great b-day party with his friends at a 熱少. Very unlike the situation where Justin lives in California, there were no masks, no social distancing and instead friendly old Taiwanese men at the restaurant joining in to offer happy birthday cheers.
It was hard not to think about the gulf of effectiveness between Taiwan's handling of the epidemic and the US's. We don't like to bore anyone with politics, but delved into it for 12 minutes following realization of how different our situations were. We talked about the epidemic, protests of police violence, health care, taxes and infrastructure.
Back to tech topics, we talked about the promise of web assembly, coding in WASM directly vs using Rust bindgen and how it could get adoption not just in browsers but also IoT.
Justin's still working on his bootcamp and working out a "level up" game for new founders—first get traffic, then find the right people and finally learn how to help them, make an appropriate product and sell it.
Which is easier to work on if you only have small chunks of time, code or written content? We disagree. But, our podcast traffic is growing... even though Mark still hasn't deployed to the site. He has started making some short clip videos from our discussions and sharing them on YT with some success.
Justin's goals for next time
- Get the Nugget bootcamp ready for review
Mark's goals for next time
- No junk food for 6 of the next 7 days
- Publish two videos for Alchemist Camp
- Get some version of Reactor.am launched
