What Worked Well:

Building an email list : About 5,000 folks asked to receive email from me. They mostly get free advice along the lines of what I've often blogged, except in a bit more detail. For example, I wrote about SaaS pricing and consulting , and subscribers have told me that they've used advice in those emails to substantial effect in their business. My basic brief is "Don't ever waste their time", mostly because I respect that people have …

RailsInstaller. I expected bugs; I expected to be creating tickets. Instead, it Just Worked. Booya! So I am personally very happy that RailsInstaller for OS/X exists. I was able to share Rails with myself!

The installer includes the osx-gcc-installer (200Mb or so) which means that users do not need to download XCode and install its command-line tools.

The entire project is open source. If you see bugs, want to improve the installer or build out a custom installer for your workplace, …

What Worked Right:

Twilio . The Twilio API and service have been unalloyed epic wins for Appointment Reminder. I had zero disruptions in service attributable to them, their customer support has been fast, responsive, and technically savvy (even helping me debug my own code at points), and they've been very supportive of me. Plus they have these awesome red track jackets that they keep sending me, which you've probably seen if you've seen a picture of me doing any …

What Worked

Speakers

The fact that Andrew Warner , Hiten Shah , Ramit Sethi , Sean Ellis , Noah Kagan and Patrick McKenzie were in the same room sharing their deepest startup secrets blows my mind. One fear if we decide to hold MicroConf 2012 is how we'd replicate this kind of line-up again. It was so awesome it will be hard to follow.

Attendees

I was also blown away by the quality of MicroConf attendees. I should have …

…answers until I tried to ad a space instead of the "underscore" in the model name. THAT WORKED. So now my yaml file looks like the following. Notice the inconsistencies in the model name! activerecord: models: email template: Email template attributes: email_template: name: Name subject: Subject body: Body

Looking at the source code for the helper method "error_messages_for" we find the thing bothering me here: I18n.with_options :locale => options[:locale], …

Everything Pretty Much Worked

Let's talk about trains for a second. Four of them were washed away by the tsunami. All of the rest — including ones travelling in excess of 150 miles per hour — made immediate emergency stops and no one died . There were no derailments. There were no collisions. There was no loss of control. The story of Japanese railways during the earthquake and tsunami is the story of an unceasing drumbeat of everything going right .

This was largely …
