RT @paulg: Justin Kan's guide to acquisitions is so good I'm tweeting it again. Every startup founder should read this.

4/ There are many reasons not to live or work in Philly proper and I don't think they should disqualify you from saying founded in Philly.
3/ I've always said Philly bc I consider myself part of the scene, people know it and I see broad inclusiveness as positive.
2/ To the outside world people think I'm in Philly, whether it is Philly proper or not.
1/ If you want to help your local startup scene, don't do this: i.e. tell locals they're not legit bc of city lines.

New post "Productivity markets" via @thunderstormapp
7/FWIW I use @fancyhands @sanebox and @awayfind in these areas and am always looking for more.
6/Contrast with @uber @lyft @asana where there is a simple, cheap adoption path without commitment or much education needed.
5/As such traditional crossing the chasm behavior doesn't seem to be occurring in a reasonable timeframe despite real widespread benefits.
4/The combination of activation energy + upfront cost + needed commitment + lack of education is just too much for productivity markets.
3/Everyone complains about day to day chores and yet on-demand labor markets aren't taking off yet.
2/Everyone complains about traffic and yet smart traffic lights are not demanded everywhere yet.
1/Everyone complains about email overload and yet email productivity add-ons do not seem mainstream.

7/ I'm guessing startup peers - CTOs, Directors of design, community etc. - similarly help each other if asked. EOTS
6/ I've been impressed how founder-founder help transcends networks, distance and space.
5/ Maybe it's more obvious inside startup centers, but outside it is an epiphany to realize every other founder is an email away.
4/ I think startup founders help each other because they have instant empathy and are natural problem solvers.
