I'm the maker of a site to find the best places to live for a digital nomad, a remote job board and a neighborhood map app. I travel to work from anywhere, bootstrap side projects into open startups and only own what fits in my backpack. I also made 12 startups in 12 months. Before that startups, I made a YouTube w/ 100+ mln views. Follow me on Twitter or read my blog. You can buy my book MAKE now.

Google+ spamming people every 2 weeks to put up a profile photo

Dear Google,

This is you sending me an email every 14 days telling me I should put up a profile photo. I don’t want to put up a profile photo up since it’s a business account that manages a page. You are now actually spamming me more than Facebook did — before I left it.

This isn’t how I used to know you. Get it together, Google.



A discussion about this post is going on at Hacker News.

P.S. I just wrote a book on bootstrapping indie startups called MAKE. And I'm now on Twitter too if you'd like to follow more of my adventures. I don't use email so tweet me your questions.
