"You don't need anyone's permission to do something great over the internet, no matter who or where you are." Amen, my man. :)
I'm 15 years old and started Botangle because people need access to a good education no matter where you are.
Hey @erikfinman! Here's some quick, unsolicited feedback: - I would like more context around who these "experts" are. Why should I trust them? What have they accomplished? - The lack of photos of these people makes it feel less personal and real. - It's unclear how I will interact with these experts. Phone call? Video chat? That said, congrats! Impressive to see so many teens building product. What was the inspiration for Botangle?
- Experts are regulated by the review system, so if an Expert does a great job. You can review that person with a positive review. - We just added the ability to add your own profile picture last Friday, so it's understandable. It used to be that you could only use the default orange profile pic. - You will contact these people through video chat with tools such as a whiteboard! I suppose I should add a how it works page. - I'm from rural Idaho so you don't get a great education here. At the time I just read @alexisohanian's book Without Their Permission which taught me that you don't need anyone's permission to do something great over the internet, no matter who or where you are. That really sank in with me. I live by that phrase, it's my Carpe Diem. - At the time Bitcoins soured to $1200 each and I was an early adopter. So I sold all my Bitcoins to fund Botangle!
