Picking your micro-ISV niche

Bob Walsh of Safari Software and author of Micro-ISV has a great article up on his My Micro-ISV blog mentioning some basic tips on selecting your business niche and product.

His two main points: “Get off the Hype Cycle” and “Don’t write a product for programmers” both seem to be very smart things to keep in mind.

I know I’ve been tempted by both more times that I can count. I actually spent several hours coding up one of these “products for programmers” ideas this past weekend. I actually came to the same conclusion on my own, but I’m glad to find someone else thinking in the same direction.
