@andrewchen - got a question on your recent marketplace article (http://andrewchen.co/recent/). You mention marketplaces start out in niches. However in your “Does anyone care about your new product” you mention “millions of searches” as a good rule of thumb to validate the concept. Do you see the two statements being at tension with each other?Would love your thoughts on that.

We just did YC S17, and another company in our batch was Fat Llama, which is a rent/borrow marketplace for tech gear. Think DJ turntables, drones, and high-end cameras.
Haven’t used it yet, but makes sense for people that only need the gear a few times / year (and for those who always buy they hot new things, but rarely use them).
Also our company, Sixty, is a 3-sided marketplace. We build partner programs as a service for SaaS companies by providing them tools (software) and talent (vetted freelancers) for an on-demand marketplace.
