Hello, world. I’m WorkFlowy.


November 4, 2010

Dear World,

We first showed WorkFlowy to you on November 4th. At the time, we enjoyed using WorkFlowy ourselves and had around 40 active, happy alpha testers. We figured we might as well get it out there see what happened. We put together some how-to and promo videos, put up a landing page and got in touch with TechCrunch writer Alexia Tsotsis through a contact, and she wrote a story.

Our expectation for the launch went like this:

  1. TechCrunch writes a story
  2. World doesn’t care
  3. We keep working

Well, World, you surprised us by seeming to care at least a little. Just under a month later, we have tens of thousands of people who are depending on our product to organize their brains and we are getting a lot of ridiculously positive feedback. We’re also getting a ton of really helpful, contructive feedback on where people would like to see the product go.

One frequent request is for a blog, so that people can keep track of what we’re working on. Well, here it is.

Thanks World, you’re the best!
