Since we started Pigeon and quit our day jobs, I cannot tell you how many times friends, family, and even complete strangers voice their disagreement with our decision.

Even after securing seed funding, there was still no shortage of people to give us their opinions.

The situation reminded me of a blog post written by Sam Altman a couple months ago.

Facebook, Twitter, reddit, the Internet itself, the iPhone, and on and on and on—most people dismissed these things as incremental or trivial when they first came out.

Now, we're not comparing ourselves to the tech elite in Silicon Valley. We are saying that we believe in our company, and we truly believe it can improve people's daily lives.

You of course are entitled to your opinion, but please don't let the limits of your own vision burden ours.
