Going it alone
I'm going it alone for now, which is something I said I'd not do again. However - I very much do want a co-founder. Everyone I want to co-found with has a job they can't leave soon for various reasons
Additionally this time I can validate it myself. It's a programming tool and I can market to programmers: it's a matter of doing what I do already - blog posts, speaking at conferences and going to meetups. In addition I know people at around 15 companies I can validate the idea with.
Progress so far
This is now week 13! I finished my contract at Skimlinks on February 10th. I'm currently working with my first beta-testers, so I'm quite pleased with progress. It's quite easy to spend a lot of time arguing about stuff with co-founders early in a startup - there's so little information to go on it's hunches all the way down. Having 0 communication overhead and no discussions makes it easy to get stuff done - you just have to hope it's the right stuff!

Wish me luck!
