I’d like to take a short moment to give you an update on my newest time sink: Listotron. Listotron is a collaborate project between Adam Wulf and myself, and we’re aiming for it to be the best online list maker ever. I will outline design philosophies and features in upcoming Listotron blog posts.
Above all else, we are using this project to learn the art of self-promotion– a skill both he and I are lacking in. As such, we will become absolutely transparent in our methods, decisions, and even code.
If you are at all interested in everything it takes to create a web-based application, I highly encourage you to keep an eye on the Listotron blog and Twitter account. We will be posting many tutorials and insights ranging from high-level business decisions to providing code. Most notably will be long posts on User Experience and User Interface processes and decisions.
Simply put, we’re betting on a strong correlation between how much we share with the community and the amount of publicity the product gets. “Selfless Promotion”, if you will.
