Following the instruction for "heroku plugins:install heroku-docker" and got

Installing heroku-docker... failed ! Could not install heroku-docker. Please check the URL and try again.

I've already upgraded to the latest Toolbelt. Thoughts?

-----


you sure you're on the latest version? 3.35.0?

-----


Hmm, looks like the toolbelt website (https://toolbelt.heroku.com/) is not for the latest toolbelt?!

I updated using gem update and got the latest 3.35.1.

But then when I updated heroku gem, I got the deprecation warning... ! The `heroku` gem has been deprecated and replaced with the Heroku Toolbelt. ! Download and install from: https://toolbelt.heroku.com ! For API access, see: https://github.com/heroku/heroku.rb

don't use the gem, install with the toolbelt

same here ...

Mayber not version usable under nux ?

I had also tried Twitter. No reply there too. To be honest, for a YC company, I found you guys surprisingly poor at customer service.

Can you link to your tweet here? I don't see any tweets from you in our feed...

This is called "loyalty capital". See this Clayton Christensen interview video for more detail https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYVdf5xyD8I (starts around 23:40)

This is the only reference to the term "Loyalty Capital" that I can find online. Strange.

Just downloaded the book! Thanks for making it free. You are very generous! I am looking to build a quick and dirty prototype for Tinder for X, and this is a great starting point for me. Thanks Nick!

Founder of ContentDJ (http://a.contentdj.com/1nrbICq) here.

I am curious to see how you guys decided to go after this space. For me, I started ContentDJ through an attempt at growth hacking on Twitter. Through a script I developed back in 2011, I was able to retweet trending content and grow my followers by about 1K per month. It turned into a viable growth channel for the startup I was working on at the time. So, I made the pivot and build ContentDJ (http://a.contentdj.com/1nrbICq).

As an interesting anecdote, last year, two product managers from Buddy Media signed up. Through Mixpanel, I found that they were particularly interested in my social media editorial calendar feature (http://a.contentdj.com/1lOiRWD). Surely enough, just last month, Salesforce announced their Marketing Cloud with a very similar content calendar in it. Unfortunately we now live in a world where multi-billion dollar public company steals from a one-man bootstrapped startup...

-----


A bit of a leap to assume it was blatantly stolen. It's entirely possible that this feature was on the roadmap long before they discovered ContentDJ. Sure, big companies may get ideas from startup products, but of course the reverse happens all the time too and both feel like fair game to me.

Don't overpersonalize things, dude.

Utility patents are your friend.

BTW, Harley Finkelstein works for Shopify not Spotify.

Here is the BBC coverage of the tool: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-23822086

Looks like it's done using D3.

-----


Just for a few of the graphs, majority of the 'wow factor' is webgl/three.js

-----


I did a ton of research once upon a time, and for pure charts and data, d3 seems amazing, given the time to learn it.

Thanks for sharing.

The philosophy has been mostly to create a profitable company, in the more traditional sense-- consistent revenue that can employ people. - I share with this philosophy exactly.

The thing I am pointing out is that because of the VC gap, startups are dealing with the lack of cash infusion to really hit a homerun. As a result, Canadian tech companies stall after growing to a certain size. The options were taking VC money with bad terms or getting bought by US companies.

US companies are buying profitable Canadian businesses at a bargain price, reaping all the benefits of job creation and ambitious business goals.

- In this scenario, the company slowly accumulates B and C players who drag down the company's reputation: death by a thousand paper cuts. The company doesn't _die_ outright, but everyone just thinks, "Oh, not a Silicon Valley level company."

Interestingly, you just described what happened to RIM.
