Faster than light...
Everything needs to be faster and faster in our time. Why?
We all think that the first one to bring a program on the internet will grab the market and makes billions. That's not true. Look around and you'll see that the top money maker on the web are all programs that has come to do something better. Yes, simply better. Google was not the first search engine. Facebook was not the first social program. Amazon was not the first book store on the internet. They're the best because they took something and made it better.
Instead of publishing a program that is not ready, you should take more time to make it the best you can. Don't take too long, but take the time needed to make it great.
Over working a program will build a spiral of new stuff to add. You should write down all those new idea and set them to be added later. You should work on your program to make it great.
Let's talk about the client...
We're all client of something on the internet. We pay for services and we want to get the best. Most of us understand that some problem need time to be resolved. But there's people who don't understand this. They want it all, and they want it now. If you don't deliver, they get really angry. Some of them are angry from the start because they think that you're trying to rip them off.
On the internet, we use text to communicate. This means that we all need to learn some of the basic social rules. First, when you write a text you need to think like the person who's going to read it. Sub jokes should never find their way in your text. Be polite and nice in your letter. Use smileys to make your text even more friendly. Never use an aggressive tone.
What ever you do, remember that you are making your reputation with everything you write on the internet. You never know when you'll need help from the person you just attacked on a chat.
