最近看到一本很有趣的书，关于micro-ISV(wikipedia)。告诉你如果要成为一个“个人独立软件商”需要考虑的事情，一直有想法做一点东西出来，但目前做出来的东西按书里边所讲的，都连半成品都没达到。如何把idea变为有益他人的东西，而且有实际产出 – 其实就是一个完整的project。 这是最重要的。尤其是涉及到一些关于版权，市场策划，以及推广的一些专业人员看来很基础的东西，对我们这些做技术的是很有价值的启发。
Self-funded: This means maybe you max your credit cards and maybe Uncle Jim helps you out, but your business is going to be largely self-funded and way below the radar of venture capitalists looking for the next billion-dollar hit.
