Launch Reality

Well, that was the euphoria talking. Now, the reality: it's live, but there are certain things that don't work right! Ruppert and Ben and their tech team have now been up more than 40 hours and the thing is still not working right... don't know how they're doing it, but they're quashing bugs one at a time. I've never thought about what would happen if this application and its deployment DOESN'T work. Never entertained the notion. I have faith in the concept and the team... But I'm not Pollyanna and all of a sudden it occurs to me that it is possible to fail, to have used up all the money we raised and still not have a product we can take to market. What does it say about me that I've only just had this thought now? Just another triumph of optimism over the hard lessons of experience, or are we really onto something?
