Notes from PapaJohn:

I released the full 'online companion' for the new 'Do Amazing Things' book, being published next month. It's the bottom branch of the menu at

The menu looks no different than it did last week, but the branch expands into a number of new pages.

This new branch completes the balancing of the 'problem-solving' tone of the site with one of 'doing things'. I'll be keeping the tone balanced as the world turns, and hopefully get more into the doing of amazing things with Movie Maker 2 as people get their startup issues behind them.
