It’s still pretty early on in Flock‘s history, so a Slashdotting now and then certainly isn’t a bad thing. Not to mention homepage coverage on BusinessWeek and a great write up by Stowe Boyd, who I had the pleasure to meet today.
But the feeling that I’ve gotten from Slashdot and around the blogs surround two things:
- What the heck is it? … and …
- Why do you have such an ugly website?
Well, the first answer would take forever to explain, so I’d rather just show you.
For the second one, hey, it took me like 2 hours on the day of our initial private launch. I was focused more on the browser and less on the site and if you don’t like it, well good â€“ more time to spend using Flock on other sites!
Anh, no, seriously … I’ll be taking another whack at it eventually but at least as far as I’m concerned, I’d rather have it be super simple, super plain and super lean. I’ll tone the volume down in the next release but at least the design, for whatever reason, seems to have inspired some kind of derivitive work.
