Our product's journey, from Day 1 to now, told in pictures.
I wrote about Netflix back in 2020 and started off the post with this:
Every startup has a crisp, neat origin story. The one Reed Hastings tells of Netflix goes like this: He gets slapped with a $40 fine by Blockbuster for his late Apollo 13 rental. Annoyed by the crappy service, he thinks as every founder struck with an idea does, there’s got to be a better way. Netflix, a content behemoth, employs the power of narrative to draw its audience of talent, partners, and investors. But in truth, it was never clear in the beginning that Netflix was a good idea. The history of the video-streaming platform holds unfamiliar characters, complicated storylines, and a bit more mess than the edited final cut.
Just as we’re prepping for the launch of Clew 2.0, our biggest update ever, we thought it’d be fun to showcase a bit of our mess. 🤷 Clew might be in its early days. Even still, we want to be mindful of the story taking form in our brief history thus far. What better way than with a recap of all the twists and turns our product has taken? Hopefully it’ll tell a story, not of how we have everything sorted, but of the mapless, messy journey ahead of anyone building anything. So here’s how it began...
Until the next recap, you can keep up with us on Twitter. ✌️
