Black is the new Black

Haahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah xD


Client: Okay, I want my site’s content to be edgy, to stand out. I’m thinking all black text on a black background.

Me: I’m not sure that’s going to really stand out much.

Client: Why did you get into web design if you have no imagination? Just try to picture it for more than a minute and you’ll see why it’ll work.

If you’re launching a consumer product for the non-technical crowd, and if it is not being launched as mobile first, then you’re really going to have hard a time in finding any meaningful engagemnt.

Time to TakeOff

So, I had been working on this new feature at JustUnfollow called TakeOff and we’ve just released it on 21st August (2 days ago).

I have been very thrilled to by the response we’ve got. We got about 10,000 (9,700 to be precise) users registering for waitlist within, and I swear I am not making this up, in 24 hours!

This has already crossed all the scale I’ve ever worked on and thankfully, the server is running glitch free (Phew!). On a side note, I’d like to appreciate Node.js’ performance. We’re running on one small instance with ~3-4%CPU utilization.

Hope to make a standalone version soon. Its time to TakeOff. :)
