Two years ago I started taking money from people in return for no-frills bookmarking. The signup price was rigged to grow by a fraction of a penny with each new user; it started at $2.04 for our very first customer (who immediately demanded a refund) and quickly soared to near the three dollar mark.
I posted our vital signs last year on this day; here’s an update from twelve months later:
27 million bookmarks
12,500 active users
16 million URLs
3 TB of archived content
99.8% uptime (29 hours offline)
No birthday post would be complete without the laundry list of new features we’ve added this year:
Twitter integration with oauth
French, German, and Japanese versions of the site
Full-text search (for archival users)
Filtering by multiple tags
Better tag auto-complete
Instapaper integration (thanks Marco!)
In the year to come I’m looking forward to adding some pleasant new features, making the site more resilient to datacenter trouble, and doing what I can to make sure I’ll be writing these birthday blog posts for many years to come. Thank you all for making this year such a triumph!
