Taking the bait, I jumped on the link and landed at Joel on Software. However it wasn't the entertaining posts that I was accustomed to by Joel on Software. It wasn't even Joel at all. It was a discussion forum with people talking about the art of microISVs.
microISVs are vendors where the project management, marketing, sales, coding, support and coffee is done by a single person. When reading this, I subconsciously paraphrased Homer Simpson. "they were guys like me. Guys like me? I'm a guy like me".
After lurking for a couple of hours and going through the archives I decided the test the waters. First post. Having been bitten on Usenet, Slashdot and Digg, I really didn't get my hopes up for a response.
What a surprise. Instead of hazing, condesendence or annoying flash ads, I got positive feedback, suggestions, links to gurus and even a request to be interviewed!
I would suggest that if your in the same boat and paddling up the proverbial stream, head over to BoS and feel the love.
