A few nights ago I kept running into the same problem, over and over again when trying to do something online. What the something is, I won’t go into just yet, but suffice it to say there are lots of services out there, offering the same thing, but all of them restrict a few key areas of functionality. These restricted things are actually what most of us want to use them for in the first place.
So the idea of picx.me was conceived, and after an all night coding session I had a working set of functionality. The day after that, another evening/all night coding session and I had a working (and documented) API as well as browser plug-ins for Chrome and Firefox built off of the back of the API.
When I can go into more detail, this will make sense, honest!
For now a few people are privy to what I’m building, I need to make sure this project doesn’t run away with me, and get a BETA launched soon. I keep getting ideas for new features which I want to build in before launching, but need to actually map out a roadmap (*sigh* this was supposed to be a very simple thing).
Its not a commercial endeavour, and I have no revenue model for it – which is very surprising for me!
I must say though, its nice to build cool techy things again, which aren’t predominately infrastructure/datacenter orientated.
For now, you can keep an eye on picx.me, and @hamlesh as always.
