Debate the doubters

I am at a friends place right now. He also happens to be a beta user of Trici, the product I am building. He was explaining to me why my product would not work. He talked about the alternatives people could use. This was a good discussion. As the discussion progressed, I was able to convey to him why I thought that people would switch from the alternatives to using Trici.

When the discussion started I was not so sure footed. His arguments and points made me think. I did not come up with anything new. But I analysed my hypothesis against the arguments presented. And after a lengthy discussion came to the conclusion that the hypothesis still holds. Its yet to be proven though.

But this discussion reinforced my belief that Trici is solving a pain point. It motivated me to work faster to prove my hypothesis.

Getting back to writing

I have to admit, I have lost my skill to write. Tweets I can write, but long form... That is another story altogether. Someone suggested that I should write on Medium. I have to admit, I like the interface of medium better than that of blogger. But after the recent post by Evan Williams announcing firings at Medium and getting their focus back on figuring out a business model that does not involve advertising, I felt I should just stick to blogger. Blogger is not going to go away. 

If you think what I am writing is shit... Yes, well I am out of practise. But to get back to practise, I will have to start writing something.. Even if that something is shit. I hope to be more regular on this blog.
