Are there places where "birds of a feather" congregate? Forums, lists, etc? I'm excited to tap the wisdom of others as I get my business off the ground.

You might also check out this site (like HN, but more focused in this area):


Two free forums populated mainly by people bootstrapping their own businesses:

http://discuss.bootstrapped.fm/ http://discuss.joelonsoftware.com/?biz

The bootstrapped.fm link makes me wonder what other wonderful sites the HN population visits, but that I have no clue about.

Snap. I've been looking into doing something like this for the past few months, and this is the first of heard of this and lifestyle.io. Guess I wasn't looking hard enough :)

The author of the original article was a guest on the bootsrapped.fm podcast - great episode.

Used to be Joel on Software forums, but it's basically dead these days.

A tragedy, actually.

There's the dynamite circle (http://www.dynamitecircle.com), but they're less about programming and software and more about internet marketing and blogging. Also, more emphasis on baselining your expenses via traveling / living in southeast asia.
