Bootstrapping

April 7 2011

While bootstrapping has a lot of advantages like:

  • being independent from outsiders/investors.

  • being worry free, since you are not burning through a fixed amount of money.

  • being able to adapt to changes by changing milestone dates and contents.

It has also some (major?) drawbacks like:

  • the development coming to a grinding halt, when your “paid for” workload is getting high.

  • being able to change milestones. (The “just by one day”-syndrome.)

  • having no one to ask for the 500 bucks you need for the music or font or whatever.

All in all we still stand by our decision to do this without outside investment. Even if it means it will take a little while longer.

And sorry for the lack of updates, but my “paid for” project is in crunch mode…
