I love, love, loved, reading the story of how Segment went from sharing a post on Hacker News to building what seems to be an enduring company:
We’d finally built something people wanted! We’d finally tapped into something with real potential, and started solving a real business problem. So we hacked for seven days straight to deliver the first version of the product.via Segment
The journey was long and I’m positive that they experienced many more ups and downs than they were even able to remember, but, they survived and are now thriving.
What an incredible story and encouragement for today, especially for those folks who are building their companies (and their dreams).
Give it a read.
