"They could select automatically copied them india and email and in it off. All right i can see now how this makes their jobs easier now. The assistance aren't wasting time accidentally putting things on the wrong calendar. And this was part of your vision on sedition was always obviously. The human is is courtroom. Can we do to that match will work with expenses since based here in the us and that something that we're for proud about but then the vision was also about the products that we're building on top d'ici lands. And how do we supercharged allegation. Both on the site. So how do we mean shrink. Phones sending tasks super easy super fast very integrated web. What they're doing on any basis. And then how do we build tools to increase the efficiency of the assistance all right. How'd you find more customers. There's a lot of ways word of mouth for aussies is strong still especially because we we target owes. Ceo's liked share secrets from each other. A win found something that was getting sugar for you. You start working with assisted and it's really having an impact in your in your reads. Then that's something that you want to share with others and so Sealer actually read a master stress so so word enough space jong we do grow. What was internal referrals as well that i was mentioning earlier when longworth is ceo very quickly. We'll onboard the rest of their executive t. Just because the skin those type it can have is part of your marketing. Do you check in with them and say. Is there someone else on your team who can use this. It is so you you land and expand you work with the ceo. And then there's there's an account executive checks in and says we can add this tomorrow so that helps beyond waiting for them to talk within their social network and promote you. Is there anything else that you could do buy ads. Do you work with them to. I don't know incentivize referrals do so. We do incentivize referral. That's kind of on the on a our biggest shell and then yes. Obviously we do bait. Ads like business stub there that are performing actually so far partnerships whereas entrepreneurs would be sees you know incubators to offer this galveston and and for merchants to the insurance they work with. We want to call sense an education around what it's like to have an assistant. Why did you need more leads. One hour and still from what i can see. The site is getting very little traffic with double dot com. Right gets it. It's come when i'm looking at similar web. Similar doesn't even have any any traffic numbers because it's so. Yeah but it's you're saying it's mostly advertising this bring people over and some of the content yes It's it's were getting traffic on the wednesday. We don't have any opposition been running smoothly actually for the last few months. We've grom well. i'm over the last year. Some surprise about the fact that you're not seeing introverts all right. I'm gonna go to stem rush right sam. Russia's more it's showing search is showing more traffic all right now. I've got a sense of it. Let's then talk about why once you hit thirty you pull back once. You hit thirty customers. Why did you decide that you weren't going to expand back in two thousand eighteen. I think so. I think that's when it was right. You told our producer. We work got the thirty at some point. We were starting to feel overwhelmed. We couldn't keep going so it wasn't really about feeling overwhelmed with marshmallow focus right So as i mentioned man. Louis i'm worried are i. I am our first day. And then four dimensional meets the onboard. Ed one or two points per month. Actually i again. He had to get as many situations and Use cases as possible one or two customers are my month. Yes for for the next six months. The idea being okay. We're not it's not about growth for now. If he wanted to do. Just like an assistant service. We could open the gates right now. Wanna make sure that we're frank was that we can can build from a product perspective so we wanted to take our time to team to be focused on to make sure that we have found perversion. That was different from what was already out there So we took our time and guts you about their. He'd retards to mention and wherever the stage where we were still a very small team. There's solich six muscle teen and hiring assistance in managing their took a lot of resources and we knew it could crack that but we also word spin mortaring again as i said like signing that proposition was reuben thorne for us and the nature of we were building their topics. And so what we decided to tonight. The time wants tawes boarding clients which from that fit also pause the equipment of new assistance and so solely to focus on the product when we and making sure that building the right products for our clients and for assistance. So we did that for about six months. learn time. I've is also trade to sell that product. That's just a a steno. Old products people people who are out assistance also learn a about the market and then eventually backley summer up twenty nineteen decided that we're ready to go back to the full service and products and launched back then and then since then have been growing consistently did take your transition towards maybe becoming a software company right when you're thinking. What was the vision. There was it. Yeah i mean. So you're where evans as we are suffering in building software. It's just part of the service themselves. It sounds like we're not doing any softwares like have my seem as a product. Engineered seeing what you might mean is that we were thinking up to me a sas mall so jagdeo was building products and right now. Wheels offensive The assistance mushrooms to cleanse is their world where people for we have. Assistance actually would benefit from using these tools. Were building swing through their relationship. okay and so for for well while we were focusing building the products. We also experimented with selling the products to assistance that.

"We are tackling a question from listener Rachel Weiss on Space Jong this growing population of manmade objects cluttering births orbit. So how exactly does that happen. Okay I let's consider what satellites are made out of metal plastic glass powered by batteries or solar panels and when they're placed in specific orbital highways. They stay there moving so quickly that they don't fall towards the earth. Kind of like you know if you had to put a boat in a body of water. Are you want to avoid fighting current kind of thing. That's more of a jaw who we met earlier. He says that. From sputnik onwards our satellites have been creating debris shedding spent rocket bodies pieces becoming glued satellites have been known to explode when unspent fuel is on boarding and of course they can cross flight paths and collide with one another and whenever satellite should pieces. They tend to not should one but many many pieces hundreds of thousands of pieces depending on the type of collision. These collisions rarely destroy the satellites. But they can alter their operation and send pieces jettisoning off into space affected not only by gravity but other physical forces. So we're pressure thermal radiation charged particle environment Interactions with magnetic fields. And all of this makes it very difficult to predict what space junk will do next. The little that falls back to Earth which is one object. A day on average burns up or falls into the ocean so so space junk is probably not going to land on your head. Have you calculated that probability. Because you're gonNA ask me question. I haven't but there's a scientist the mark matinee at NASA's orbital debris program who has it's one in several trillion. Honestly I still like it. Okay Mattie the people you should worry about more four astronauts right. The International Space Station actually has a tracker to monitor for collision risk and they will maneuver out of the way when the risk is too great. Wow but I feel like if there was a major collision I would hurt about it right. Yeah there hasn't been a major collision you know the US military NASA and other agencies and groups around the world they tracked debris and Warren earn of potential collisions. But there's been a few scares in recent decades so in two thousand fifteen for example the crew on the International Space Station had to hide in their Sawyer's capsules basically the stations lifeboat. When debris from an old Russian weather satellite came dangerously close? I don't like that. No spacecraft and satellites will routinely maneuver out of harm's way away but only if they have ample warning so the whole spacefaring community was pretty rattled when in two thousand seven. The Chinese military destroyed one of their own weather satellites nights. They were testing out. anti-satellite Technology Brian Weeden remembers tracking this big explosion for the US Air Force. I personally was sort sort of shocked. It was kind of like wow. Brian was part of a squadron that counted the resulting debris and in the end ended up cataloging more than three thousand objects so that one satellite got turned into three thousand things. And that's just the things we can track wasn't space junk big part of the movie gravity you are remembering cracks. Blake from the missile strike has caused a chain reaction hitting other satellites in creating new degrees two thousand eighteen. Hollywood movie it begins. With a chatty George Clooney and Sandra bullock look servicing the Hubble space telescope as and contentedly back at Earth when this huge cloud of debris from missile strike grips through like a communication blackout. It's it's about situation happened north. America's lost their baseball dramatic portrayal. Definitely raise the profile of space junk. Even if the portrayal wasn't very accurate I think maybe I'm a whole at has been a good thing for for the issue even if I might grumble a little bit scientists love to grumble. That's Brian Weeden again gun. He's now the director of program planning for the Secure World Foundation. Thanks a lot about sustainability in space and he says that opening scene gravity doesn't capture the true problem over the breath catches him was portrayed as sort of a a nuclear chain reaction right. There's one event that sets off this series of things that will happen very fast the reality he is sort of the opposite where it's it's like climate change the problem with space junk is it's a long relatively slow accumulation over for decades with a big negative impact down the road. Got It yeah so. Brian says mitigating. The risk of space junk involves convincing people launching satellites it's governments and companies to change their behavior now mindful of the future and maybe have a little inconvenience or a little more cost now to forestall bad things in the future and that's a really difficult argument to make because we humans just aren't engineered to kind of think like that preach especially especially when nothing truly catastrophic has happened yet but space junk is already proving to be problematic in the short term. It's translating into real world. Costs a satellite operators field alerts about potential collisions. Do Do I change my satellites orbit because that costs fuel and that will shorten the lifetime your satellite which which isn't good for the commercials base economy which is Kinda booming right now. Yeah we did that episode. All about how SPACEX is going to put a bunch of satellites up there right you know in the long term. Space trump has the potential to not only collide with manned spacecraft like the International Space Station but threatens satellites at all levels of orbit like those used for imaging and whether data collection election which then could mean. Our climate models are less accurate or we don't have a good way to track the mirrors and that could have negative impacts down the road. Yeah we're GONNA need that data we are. But here's the thing there's no. International Regulation for how satellites should operate. There's only guidelines guidelines yes the guidelines from the Inter Agency Space Debris Coordination Committee for mitigating the risk of debris. Things like Deorbit your satellite after twenty five years by burning it up for bringing it down passive the upper rocket stage meeting vent all the remaining fuel or draining the batteries so it's not exploding so there's less risk for debris countries do this but it's totally voluntary. It's up to each individual nation to implement so until there's greater accountability. Space Junk will continue to be a problem. Okay okay. We've talked about the problem. Give me a solution kwong. Like what is being done to clean up this junk while we're not seeing much in the skies there's has been demonstrations of different cleanup technologies on earth that could be used in space magnets deployable nets harpoons. A little space fishing. Yeah in the orbital see see most of this cleanup technology is being developed in Europe and Japan. But here's the thing we don't know what's the best way to Yank this swiftly moving debris out of orbit it to a place where it can safely burn up. You need a high level of precision to remove that junk without creating more of it and I feel like that would take a lot of money to pull that off. Yes yes so. It was a pretty big deal. When last December the European Space Agency Green Lit the first ever cleanup mission called clear space one which is estimated? It cost over one hundred million dollars and twenty twenty five. The European Space Agency plans to send a cleanup robot to scoop up a chunk of old old European rocket a chunk so they're spending over one hundred million dollars to clean up one piece of space junk. It's a big piece is is more significantly. This hasn't been done before right. Can we agree church. This is kind of progress. It could be a game changer. In the void of space which more about considers an ecosystem that we need to actually try to protect so if these natural pathways become. I'm too polluted to congested. If we can't use these horrible highways anymore then you can say goodbye to these services and capabilities so this is my concern. That's a tragedy of the Commons as it were in their space because of this lack of holistic management of this finite resource for me. It's so easy to see spaces infinite right but the space we use most that houses. Our satellites is actually pretty finite. Emily thank you for taking on this enormous listener listener question.

"So last time I had the last series that I kind of watched by myself That she watched sheet up washing part of it with me just because I was watching it was I. I've binged the haunting of Hill House season. One which was great great weight. I I love every episode into the last one I fell. Get it it faltered at the end. But what are you GONNA do But I mean watchman's with sears when it's over I would like to re-watch it straight. Yes his I feel like. This is some series stories. Like I don't mind the wait for each week. But some shows like I would like to binge watches because they're so tightly done That the the A gap of the week you missed details or forget things And that's what I feel like with. This shows are things you might notice where things are gonNA come back up in a later episode odd totally forgot about that own. The older. Laurie played by Jean smarts. I mean very well done for very a good did you. Did you ever watch legion. Probably not No she was good in that yet. I mean you've really got to be a marvel fan. I mean that's like a spin off of an x men spinoff. It's just it's very tricky but it is good. Was it like three wife. I thought about but man. I'm just there's just too much. Yeah Yeah I mean it's done now but it was like three or four seasons is really good though shoes in that she was also in remember can't remember figured out the looking up right. Now she was killed by Space Jong Doctrine at and space junk Oh my Lord. I was just waiting for that line. You know so he does some kind of you know the suicide bombers is like you know swing for him to be like you know what I've up stood up the doctor Manhattan Space Junk. You think bombs GonNa scare me. Yeah look down the barrel of that Blue Gun. And I'm still standing loom I'm just looking at her. IMDB actresses that if senior face. I've seen a lot of stuff. She's in doesn't mean that she was the main caterer talk popped out at me but just she's a lot of stuff That I've seen but I'm every Oh she she was in voiced. Helen Bench rinks then tricks and Batman the animated series. But I am intrigued by this show. I I wasn't sure like I would say that. This episode renewed my desire to watch the show more in like more pay more attention to it. Oh yes just so you know I was Kinda like man other okay. I'm digging this show but I'm not really hooked yet it's kind of That.
