MicroConf Remote 2021

Start Small, Stay Small #

A week ago, I went to MicroConf Remote 2021. This was the first time of my six times going to MicroConf that I did not feel like a loser among athletes. This was the first time I went to MicroConf where I wasn’t nursing the one idea I’ve had since forever, that by now Segment has comfortably updated and made way easier to do (Huh! It’s “Twilio Segment” now? Didn’t see that one coming.).

Microconf Europe #

This was the first year that my staying awake during the conference wasn’t touch and go because of lack of oxygen and anemia. This was the first year that I wasn’t physically there in Las Vegas, or Dubrovnic, and thus the first year that my tiny self didn’t feel overwhelmed by giants from Europe (are the Dutch getting taller?) and America.
Dubrovnik '19

Speaking of which, this was the first year in which it wasn’t: Well maybe this is just a mostly white people thing and that’s why I don’t feel I belong? You know, on the Internet, no one knows you’re a dog. This was also the first year where returning from MicroConf I didn’t get horribly ill.

Single Founder #

This was the first Microconf where I didn’t see Mike Taber, and I really missed him because Mike is my hero. Or maybe I just didn’t figure which character he was:

Marketing Cheat Codes #

Shout out to all the entrepreneurs, investors, and sponsors representing the diverse and inclusive MicroConf community. Some of these folks are done and would love for you to join them, some are still building and could do with encouragement and support, and some are just way cool (looking at you, whatifi!). Just a bonanza of teardowns! Company sites spotted at Remote (and if I missed you, correct me):

I’ve adopted Brian Casel’s 2019 idea of setting themes for your plans for the new year, rather than focusing on goals. I have both 2020 - 2029 decade themes and yearly themes, but the decade themes have a touch of privacy, so I’ll stick... Continue →
