+Linh Nguyen I agree with you that +John O'Nolan is comparing apple and oranges here. Support without shares are one thing. Even buy of a minority share is still better then selling the company and control over the future. It is more or less failing the trust given by all kickstart contributers.

I'm really enjoying this series of posts. Thanks for sharing the story, and all of your hard work for what I believe is going to be a very formidable product. I already love using Ghost and am excited to see where it goes.

I think Slack will completely redefine distributed teams over the next 2 years. Total game changer - http://cl.ly/TvDQ

Can you elaborate? I mean, so far, I can't see them doing anything that Flowdock wasn't doing for years (third party integrations, IRC & XMPP etc.)

Interesting that the +Ghost community seems to be growing even faster than its Facebook equivalent - I wonder what we could do to improve the experience further for the community over here? Suggestions welcome

I've noticed the same thing with a responsive page in each platform.  I put it down to being easier to join communities in G+ and the fact that you're not necessarily bombarded with targeted content after you join.

FB accounts seem to be more picky when it comes to joining groups/pages probably due to the worry that more of their personal information will become available to the page owners.
