@chenierannie Selon cet article, Etsy est en voie de générer un volume de 750 M $ en transactions cette année, en hausse vs 527 M$ l'an dernier.
Ça serait peut-être une bonne idée de contacter une trentaines de vendeurs représentatifs des membres du CCG pour faire un portrait des objectifs / résultats obtenus et de publier ça auprès de vos membres.
Pas nécessairement difficile considérant que vous pouvez les contacter via le site.

@chenierannie effectivement, 140 caractères c'est peu. Et je suis d'accord qu'il faut avant tout connaître le marché pour pouvoir essayer des choses qui ont des chances de réussir. Pas certain moi non plus que le consommateur d'oeuvres d'art ou de produits de métiers d'art soit sur le web quoique Etsy à quand même réussi à regrouper un paquet d'acheteurs potentiels. À évaluer.

The notary who granted the ownership of the sun is stupid.
Everyone knows that the sun is owned by Mr Burns.
And he have the best lawyers.

ginidietrich Howie Goldfarb You need to watch Gladiator and 300 back to back. Then get outside and shout "Spartaaaaaaaaaaaaaa"!
I don't remember where I read this but someone once said that real leadership is to make people face their death without fear.
But it's entirely possible that I've just made it it up... :)

Howie Goldfarb Wow! In this case it's more than Murphy's law, it's Murphy's wife law : my husband was an optimist.

Howie Goldfarb Totally agree with you. By definition a plot which would succeed would not be anticipated. By definition.
Of course it doesn't mean we should not take reasonable measures to prevent it. The problem will always be the blurry line between reasonable and unreasonable. To me, the anwser is a more pragmatic risk management approach rather than an irrationnal search for perfect security at all costs.
We tend to overestimate risks when we don't understand or can't control them.
For example, I have a client who wanted totally garanteed IT security after he saw some news report and I said to him, how many people can break into a computer? Not many. How many people can break the window next to your server and steal the server? A lot of people. Let's start by putting the server somewhere else before we install IDS systems and deploy crazy Firewalls...
BTW, maybe an interesting variation on the cucumber foil thing would be to go in your underwear with a rain coat over and when it's your turn you go "Woohoo!", drop the rain coat and start running in circle shouting "Elvis is not dead! Elvis is not dead!" with a tin foil hat on your head. Or maybe that's a bit too much? #PlanToEndUpInTheNeverHeardFromAgainCategory
ginidietrich When your dog chew on something he souldn't, do you shout "Drop your weapon" in a menacing tone? :P
To answer your question about what I do, I am a web developper working on a few web apps. One is a specialised e-commerce and logistics solution for community supported agriculture networks, another is for costs management / hr automation for restaurants and caterers and I'm working on another for a specific segment in the travel space...
Good luck with your startup! How can it not succeed with a name like that!

Being new here, I have one crucial question : What is Project Jack Bauer and is David Palmer involved?
