You may want to put a better description in your tilt page. You are assuming everyone visiting it know what that device is.

You might want to take a look at the link. It is not waht you are assuming.

Si I cannot even look at the product because I do not live in the US?

Who makes these decisions?

>>Who makes these decisions?

Americans.

Just installed it for my blog. http://oonwoye.com. It's Looking great.

I'd love to give credit but I do not want to tamper with my footer code before I break something.

I would not mind if it is made part of the plugin code that way people will not be "forced" to withhold credit.

Yep, we installed it for https://eaternet.io – restaurant health inspection scores. Looks beautiful.

I usually do a manual installation of Sphinx Search or something similar, and do all the tuning myself. But for this project, we're using Heroku and total PaaS-based development. Swiftype was a great drop-in solution. It's been excellent, and as a fast as a well tuned Sphinx implementation.

Thanks for your feedback! Adding a simple way for WordPress users to give credit is definitely something we want to add. Stay tuned.

Linking straight to the file is going to be VERY expensive for people like me who pay per MB as it would automatically download in a lot of browsers when clicked.

Do consider linking to a page that directs people to the file.

Agreed! I uploaded the movie on my own server with a very short post to explain what it's all about. Download should be quite fast depending on your location.

Thanks for rehosting, but your version is definitely not HD, coming in at 640x360 resolution.

Yes, sorry that, I am currently getting the Citizenfour.2014.720p.WEB-DL.AAC2.0.H264-FGT version and will update the post once ready.

The Gotham Air app will revolutionize the way you travel. Our iOS and Android based technology will allow you to enjoy crowd sourced helicopter flights when you want. Call your friends or meet some new ones on board. A beautiful new Bell 407 helicopter is just minutes away!

Is it really hard to describe services in plain English?

BTW, it's a good idea. Lagos used to have one before.

I find the phrase "crowd sourced helicopter flights" strangely terrifying.

I think this is the phenomenon that forms the basis for Gladwell's BLINK.

It took me a while to learn that almost everything I have heard or seen has already been stored. The problem of memory is in retrieval.

This also applies to creative work. When you have seen quite a lot of things, it ends up influencing stuff you could swear was original.

Congrats Michael!

Michael has been very kind and always helpful whenever I have reached out to him. YC is lucky to have him!

Any reason why you did not ask Tim first before declining? My assumption is that you had a fairly good relationship with Tim which was why you were asked.

I'm trying to understand the thinking when people refuse to do "harmless intros".

I've learned my lesson since then, and will do in the future.

I think it was just protecting my friend's time, and not bringing him anything that I didn't feel 100% "hell yeah this is totally your thing".

I'd like an introduction from me to be seen as a real endorsement.

To show how far tangential PG's position is to reality, there is a saying that goes "nice guys fish last". So much so that when a good person succeeds people go out of their way to mention "this is a good person that did not finish last.

Of course, although I do not advocate meanness and I do not like mean people, the reality states otherwise.
