Sunday Curations – 🎄 Advent Special ❄️
Daily Advent Insights + Jason Fried on Idea Validation
With the weather in London getting really damn cold and Christmas drawing closer, we kicked of a little Fount Advent Special:
24 Insights for December running up to Christmas Eve. We share these on twitter and discuss in the discord. Here are the first four. Always looking for inspiration so do share any that you think we should highlight.
And thanks to everyone that engaged with us on Reddit + a warm welcome to a lot of new folks joining the last two weeks!

AI ist still blowing our collective minds:
Jason Fried wrote on Validation of Ideas:
You can’t validate something that doesn’t exist. You can’t validate an idea. You can’t validate someone’s guess. You can’t validate an abstraction. You can’t validate a sketch, or a wireframe, or an MVP that isn’t the actual product.
There’s really only one real way to get as close to certain as possible. That’s to build the actual thing and make it actually available for anyone to try, use, and buy. Real usage on real things on real days during the course of real work is the only way to validate anything. And even then, it’s barely validation since there are so many other variables at play. Timing, marketing, pricing, messaging, etc.
Remix on Fount
And for some lightheartedness, there is a Fount Playlist with a collection of Dad Jokes (by Gopi). Would love to see more of that!
