The three most important things in a startup are....

Focus, focus, focus. Yes, that is one thing and that is the point, to borrow a phrase from the real estate market (it's about location, location, location).

Our current focus at Vyatta is on building our community.

In the grand scheme of community building, we've landed on the island, found some water and built a grass hut in the middle of the jungle. People from 60+ countries have come to check out what our community is building and that is exciting! Still, I look forward to when we will have an established community center filled with social gatherings of members imbibing mixed cocktails!

We're always looking for input on how to make our community stronger, how to build better buildings and how to get more folks involved. We want you involved and intend to keep it that way in the future. Please come register for our database, get signed up for our mailing lists,, edit the wiki or contact us directly.

I hope you've enjoyed week one - we're absolutely enjoying the community interaction and conversations.

I could not agree more re: focus. I wish you the best. We spoke briefly about my company, Asankya, a few months ago. We are trying to keep our focus while stakeholders around us keep offering "help" that potentially kills us.
