@swyx , how do you feel about landing pages, before you launch, for e.g. (concrete examples, actually):

  • private beta and/or product updates mailing list for a SaaS
    • which will likely be paid-only?
    • and one that will likely never be subscription, but monetized through some other means?
  • a connected device for which I'll probably need to crowdfund to prototype?

yes, i like having them, but also mailing list signups are only a minor form of validation, you only really know you have something once you ask people for money.
