The Linux Boot Sequence, Visualized
Most of us don’t appreciate all the processes involved with our OS’s boot sequence; we’re far more interested in watching that status bar fill. In this visualization of the Linux boot sequence, each function is a node, and each line connecting the nodes represents a call, direct branch, or indirect branch. The image itself was created via logarithm interpreting the process as electrical signal, so if we’re reading this correctly, it’s almost as if you’re looking at the brain pathways that boot Linux (oh you computer science junkies will have a field day with that analogy).

It’s important to keep many of the same bootstrapping ideas while operating and growing a business even after funding. To quote Howard Lindzon, “Too small to fail” is one way to look at the problem. Operations that are lean and mean that utilize outsource partners are a good example. Collaborative workforce technologies also reduce the need for a dedicated staff and companies can therefore operate efficiently with independent contractors and consultants. Companies that look at new technologies to support such business models will have success surviving and growing in this turbulent market. We have 2 employees and have been in stealth mode for 3 years producing products that support collaborative workforce efficiency in the online retail space. I plan to continue to run our business as efficiently as possible with or without funding.
