6000 Customers

Category : Commentary/6000Customers.txt

I think we've crossed 6000 paid customers.

I just read that the guys at Parallels sold 100,000 copies of their virtualisation software at $80 per copy. So 6000 pales into insignificance when compared with that.

But I know it'll mean something to me if I do get to cross the 10,000 mark. Building a business one customer at a time.

Is this too slow? Slow is when you're waiting for time to pass in Eternity.

"To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour."

Now, who said that?

I'm reading this book "Art and Physics - Parallel Visions in Space, Time & Light" by Leonard Shlain. If you've ever done physics in school and know enough to tell a Monet from a Manet, this may make interesting reading (in spite of the pretty bad reviews it's gotten at Amazon, but one man's meat is another man's poison and so on ...)
