Hard to know how to start this blog entry.
It’s summer. My youngest son was born just a few weeks ago. Life is good.
It’s been over two years since we started bettermeans.
Over the past few months, we’ve come to the conclusion, that while we have a strong and powerful idea that we believe in, we haven’t succeeded in creating a viable and sustainable business around that idea.
So we’re killing the business, and releasing the idea to our community.
We will continue to host bettermeans.com and contribute to the code along with the community. We will discontinue email and phone support (except for paying customers)
As of today, the bettermeans code is open sourced under the GPL licence where we hope it will continue to thrive and serve the amazing people that depend on it.
This is by no means the end of bettermeans. Simply our decision to no longer have our livelihood tied to it.
I still firmly believe that the time for open enterprise, and bettermeans is here. My hope and prayer is that many more people join now that the code is free, and continue to evolve the ideas and the tools that will support the future of work.
It’s been an incredible ride. We’ve met so many outstanding people doing amazing things in the world.
So long, and thanks for all the fish.
