This is a really good read and if you’re part of the management at Adafruit you’ll see many parallels and have some “head nodding” “oh yahs”, Adafruit is past the “start up” phase and we chose not to take funding, however, many good thoughts and we’re still hungry and scrappy to keep this all going.
