Good morning everyone! Now that is up, and we're moving on to the next startup, I'd like to make a couple announcements: • The time has come for my own community channel, so I'd like to invite you all to join the Startup in a Month Discord! Invite link here: One thing I'm going to focus on more for this next month is community engagement, so you'll see more posts, ideas, and discussions over on Discord :dancer: • My streaming schedule will recommence this week: Monday-Thursday 2PM to 5PM Eastern! I've missed streaming since I've been away, excited to get back into it. The stream link as always is:


And finally, I'd like to announce next month's startup! It will be called .... MAIL FILE. This is another app inspired by the concept of solving your own problems. Have you ever emailed yourself something to save it for later? I do it constantly. On the one hand, emailing yourself is the easiest, snappy way to save information. No app integrations, no passwords, no syncing between devices, no signup, no BS: just a copy+paste and a send and you're golden. It's the perfect user experience: everybody knows how to do it, there are no surprises or new things to learn, and practically zero friction. On the other hand, emailing yourself is probably the worst way to keep and reference information. Once that link or quote or photo or whatever lands in your inbox, it starts to disappear into the quicksand of your life as more emails start to pile up on top of it. After a few days or weeks, it's been swallowed whole. If you remember the URL for the link, maybe you can search for it after it disappears from page one of your inbox, but otherwise you've gotta go sifting backwards, page by page, until you find it. So quoth Sweet Brown from the annals of meme history:


Mail File, on the other hand, combines the awesome UX of emailing yourself with a better organization method than just tossing it all into a messy pile. Instead of emailing what you want to save to yourself, you email it to a custom address (like <|> or <|>). Once it lands on Mail File's servers, the body of the email is parsed to find links, quotes, and other patterns of information, and everything is filed away based on type: like recipes, articles, blog posts, etc. Anyway, very excited to start production on the app! Join us on for more information, or as always, check out for more news 😄 Andy

@andyfry01 did you forget to make the link never expire?


Hmm, let's try that again


How about this one?

kevinmershon 2021-04-12T16:31:03.012300Z

kevinmershon 2021-04-12T16:31:37.012500Z
