I like your use of the phrae "meaningful products." I probably should have emphasized that in the article itself.

As I read back through it, I worry some people might think I'm arguing entrepreneurs should build an audience and then throw a bunch of junky products at them. Product still matters, it's just not the valuable asset. Audience is the valuable asset.
