Ryan Carson updates the world on his blog on how cool Treehouse is. Yes, Treehouse is cool, but to write:

We work a 4-day week and just raised $4.75m

The glory is not in the raising of cash. It’s what he actually writes in the main article, that’s worth gloating about:

Profitability (yay!)
$3,000,000+ yearly revenue run rate (and growing fast)
Grown the Team to 34 full-time people and hiring at least 10 more as soon as possible

No wonder people on HackerNews slashed him. There’s a growing resentment of people showing off how much cash they can raise without the prospect of ever creating a business, just a sell-out.

Not Treehouse though.
