    I'm looking to make a hierarchy chart. It's actually not for an organization. What's the best software for this? Ideally, it would accept an excel format or something like that, and then handle drawing the visualization for me.

    What's the best place to find (technical) co-founders?

    I'm currently looking for iOS, Android, and Node.js developers to finish up a sweet new social/utility app 😁 Without funding, it is key to find partners that 1) have a lot of free time to work on the project by investing their own time and 2) are first and foremost motivated by passion for the idea itself. A lot of platforms for team recruitment are focused on finding designers, paid freelancers, or are unfortunately ghost towns. Anyone know any co-founder recruitment platforms with great communities or success stories out there? 🔥

    How do you discover new videos to watch daily?

    I watch something every morning / evening while cooking or eating. Usually, it is a TEDTalk, but I'm interested in discovering new talks/videos around tech, arts, design, science or history. What would you recommend?
  16. What can I use to rapidly test my ideas?

    Can I build a product in a week , weekend, day or even an hour? The question makes sense because it is always better to have something out in the wild and quickly. But, even though I know this: I struggle with moving from an idea to a product. Ideally, I would like to move really quickly through this process to test whether an idea matters or not. If you have any suggestions as to what apps, products, books, etc may assist in rapidly testing ideas I would be most appreciative. I am also answering this question below. (Update - 23 October 2017. Thanks. Keep the recommendations coming. I think I am going to try as many as I can over the next few weeks - will post updates below).
