Esto fue un experimento que llegó a su fin

Empezamos Popcorn Time como un desafío a nosotros mismos. Ese es nuestro lema. Es nuestro motor.

Estamos increíblemente orgullosos de este proyecto. Es nuestro mayor logro hasta ahora. Y formamos un equipo espectacular en el proceso, con gente con quien amamos trabajar. Y para ser sinceros, todos tenemos un nudo en el estómago. Amamos a Pochoclín y a todo lo que representa, y de alguna manera sentimos que estamos defraudando a nuestros geniales colaboradores. Estamos sorprendidos de todo lo que puede lograr la comunidad open-source.

Somos startup geeks. Siempre lo fuimos y siempre lo vamos a ser. Leemos Techcrunch, Reddit y Hacker News. Salimos en la portada de Hacker News dos veces. Al mismo tiempo. Escribieron sobre nosotros en Time Magazine, Fast Company, TechCrunch, TUAW, Ars Technica, Washington Post, Huffington Post, Yahoo Finance, Gizmodo, PC Magazine y Torrent Freak, sólo por nombrar algunos. Incluso tuvimos nuestro momento radial y televisivo, y esto ni siquiera incluye la cantidad de entrevistas que tuvimos que rechazar por el nivel de atención que recibimos. …


This experiment has come to an end

We started Popcorn Time as a challenge to ourselves. That’s our motto. That’s what we stand for.

We are enormously proud of this project. It is the biggest thing we’ve ever achieved. And we’ve assembled an amazing team in the process, with people we love to work with. And to be honest, right now every single one of us has a knot in our stomachs. We love Pochoclín and everything it stands for, and we feel that we are letting our amazing contributors down. The ones who translated the app into 32 languages, some of which we weren’t even aware existed. We stand in awe at what open source community can do.

We are startup geeks, first and foremost. We read Techcrunch, Reddit and Hacker News. We got frontpaged in Hacker News twice. At the same time. We got articles on Time Magazine, Fast Company, TechCrunch, TUAW, Ars Technica, Washington Post, Huffington Post, Yahoo Finance, Gizmodo, PC Magazine and Torrent Freak, just to name a few. And we got some action on TV and Radio shows, and this doesn’t even include the many interviews we had to reject due to the barrage of media attention. …


What we do, and more…

We started Popcorn Time as a challenge to ourselves. A group of geeks from Buenos Aires who wanted to see if they could create a better way to watch movies, and also give some new technologies a try. We scratched our own itch. We built a Beta and published it on Github to share it with the world and see if other people thought it was an interesting project.

We envisioned a better and simpler way to experience movies in a digital environment.

We didn’t expect the reaction we got at all. In less than a week Popcorn Time became one of the most watched repositories in GitHub (the largest open source community in the world), and quickly started building new releases. We did nothing more than throw a few links here & there and people voiced, in unison, that this was a product they’ve been wanting for a long time. …
