So whatcha gonna DO about it?
That time I saw a need for something and ignored it for months
The start of a cautionary tale
We knew it was coming. The trolls had taken over. It was fun while it lasted.
Blab had been a video chat platform with public rooms — so imagine Google Hangouts with four friends, only anyone can tune it.

But it died.
September 2016 had me going:

It dawned on me. We could just MAKE it. The weird bastard child of the dozen apps I’d tried and rejected, with just enough new concepts to make things interesting (and my own, not just a clone).
Don’t be like me, sitting on my tuckus wishing for a product that doesn’t exist. Go out, build it now.
