A strange euphoria came over me today and I couldn't quite figure out exactly what it was. Ev told me, "That's what it feels like when people are using your stuff!" He's totally right. What a great couple of weeks we've just had. Hiring Dom away from Macromedia turned out to be key to shipping a vision with which I am very much aligned.
Now we've got a private beta of our Create tools running and people seem to be using it just how we hoped. In fact, I spent the morning sending out quick one-minute odeos to my friends and family. Working at Odeo is even more idea-friendly than Google. We triage ideas! We went from an Omnigraffle mockup to a beta product in a few weeks. I'm getting really psyched.
