Affirmative! I think the perceived tone of this changed when it made the jump from daily beemail to public forum thread. The way startups communicate, people expect there to be a bunch between the lines.
There is nothing between the lines here!
We need to grow in 2016 and there's a 90+% chance we will do so. Because we have to. We maybe don't literally have to because we're profitable so I, being me, set up a commitment device to make us really have-to have to. Namely, public commitment that we're going to get day jobs at the end of 2016 if we haven't grown.
Doing that remains unthinkable and we definitely haven't devoted a single brain cycle to what we'd do in a post-Beeminder world because we're committed to making that be moot.
Also a world without Beeminder would be downright apocalyptic, as several of you have so kindly said.
So, yeah, @drtall, a lights-out Beeminder just isn’t at all on our radar right now, so it shouldn’t be on yours either.
