What are you building?

I've previously built rentmarketapp.com but want to upgrade functionality similar to wip.chat.
Not sure if I should go deeper with python packages or just switch to javascript platforms.

Thanks!

For the machien learning part I would recommend python. For the part that's user facing, especially in the browser, I would recommend javascript.

What does "manage your attendees" mean to you? I'm not sure what you're asking

How do you manage your bookings? ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Cool, how do you manage your classes/attendees now?

Lose your streak, ghost shows what your longest ever was

ah ok, youll never see me with it :)

I did it with both Wells Fargo and Chase. Moved to Chase because it has better online banking (didn't need physical presence to make a wire transfer, for example)

Interesting, good to know. Revolut bank plans to open in the US in the next few months and I plan to move everything to them then.

Agree. Revolut looks interesting. I hope it will be available in Japan soon!

Yes. If you can walk into a branch with your passport, any of them will let you open a bank account. I had one before I even had a social security number.

Just FYI: I was successful in doing this with Wells Fargo, but had problems with Chase. Some banks will hold 10-30% of your money for tax purposes prior to you having a SSN I believe.

I will try it when I visit US. However, I don't have a plan to go to US in this and next year. I'm looking for an online banking solution. Do you have any idea about it? :D

Charles Schwab letโ€™s you open a US bank online but you would have to provide proof of residence + social security number. Not sure of others if you are non-resident.

Yeah, Charles Schwab would be the ideal choice if i were eligible to open my account. Their service is best for digital nomads.

One consideration to keep in mind is that Utopia vs. Dystopia often depends on your place in society. Every utopia is built on the backs of a disposable workforce and all that.

But if we're talking 8m views to a sales page for a $49 product (realistic) with a conversion rate of 1% (realistic). That's worth about $3,920,000.

However if we're talking 8m views to a homepage with no buy button and no ad in sight, then the value of that traffic is approximately $0.

So really it depends.
