This strategy is so baked into people's head that when you actually build something and toss a url out there where they can download the product, they ask you where they can subscribe to the waiting list.

And I'm like what kind of waiting list, there's literally a download button on the page.

Makes me think if the strategy really works - like for everyone - or it's just for indie hackers who already know about this.

Love this man.

I'm a developer and I can't tell you how many things I've shipped to Netlify without validating first! Thousands of lines of code... hours and hours of time I won't get back.
