Friday was an exciting day for us… Daytum became unofficially official. Links appeared across the Internet and our invite request list began filling up in earnest.
The idea for the site hatched in January. By May the site had a name, and over the last few months we’ve been adding functionality and refining the experience bit by bit. Daytum.com has been online for a few months, but remained unpublicized and unknown until a casual link on flowingdata.com started bringing a few visitors our way.
The great news is that we have learned how much desire exists for our site, and that arm-twisting won’t be necessary to build a community. The flipside is that we need a little more time before we can begin opening the doors. We hope to begin sending invites by the end of the week, and are eager to see all the creative ways it’s put to use in the coming months.
