"After it folded, I met @ben
and we started working on Texts.com"
How long after Hatch folded-- 6 weeks... 6 months?
Did you meet Ben virtually / online?
How did you & Ben agree to start working on Texts-- was it a project or a side hustle?
Much closer to six weeks. It folded at the end of 2012 and we met in Feb of 2013.
We met on /r/nycjobs
Texts.com was a "real project," in that we were both doing it full-time. At the very start it was more "my" project with Ben helping out as a contractor; but, within a month or two, it became clear we got along well and were ready to commit as real partners.
That's a cool way to begin + cement a relationship. Thanks for the details... very insightful.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
