Barnacles: "News for bootstrappers, not VC hackers" (barnacl.es)
by nickpsecurity to news business 9 days ago | 4 comments





This is a sister site to Lobsters that focuses on articles for growing a business, mainly SaaS-type business. There's occasionally been good articles on there over time. Especially on marketing which seems to be more important than programming in selling or just growing software. Developers wanting success should probably read more of that stuff. I've been slowly growing more knowledge in the weak area.

Note: It's also a sister site of Lobste.rs. Uses the Lobsters engine. Both are administered by Peter Bhat Harkins (pushcx).

Ah first I thought it was as laarc is to HN, but then I realized that the content had a very different angle.

It's actually more like the business part of HN or IndieHackers presented with Lobsters-style (eg tagging) and focus on bootstrapping. Bootstrappers are new businesses that are built on their founders' cash. Usually savings or loans that they will owe back. They have to grow in a way that brings in money, not just users, with a focus on long-term sustainability. So, pushcx made a site that's dedicated to them.

He talked about VC vs bootstrapping here from a cultural perspective of Bay Area vs Chicago (his home):
