Almost six years ago, I started hacking on some Java code so I could email photos from my iPhone to my blog on Blogger. This is long before there was anything called “Posterous”.
I was just a photo blogger in New York, and I wanted to go mobile. So I started building, just for myself.
Here’s the very first post, running through the code that would later become Posterous At this point it was just me, working from my couch in NYC.
I hacked together a little code that lets me blog directly from my
iPhone, with pictures!
Stay tuned for more late night, drunk blogging. This could be a bad
What an incredible journey it has been. Over the past 5 years, I’ve worked with some of the best investors in the valley, collaborated with the best founders and startups in the world, and listened to and learned from an incredible set of users.
Most importantly, I get to work with the greatest team ever. It was all the hard work by the Posterous team that made the product loved by millions. Good times and bad, they stuck through it.
Thanks to everyone for the love and support. Especially my wife, Kate. It wasn’t easy dealing with the work hours, the late night pages, and the unreal amount of stress.
The team is thrilled to be a part of Twitter, and continuing on our mission here.
