The 12 hours of email happiness

Yesterday was an amazing day. I can’t begin to explain how thrilling it is to have happy users after a year and a half of hard work.

Yesterday we did a sneak-peak early beta. We allowed anyone who visited our web site between 9AM and 9PM PST to download Xobni Insight. Our goal was to engage the earliest of early adopters and all the people following the TechCrunch40 conference.

We were amazed by the response; we got a ton of downloads. From real estate brokers to professors to journalists to software engineers to IT managers to sales people – we’ve engaged a diverse group of users. We’re listening to them and improving our software in real time.

Why the 12 hour window? We have a small team and we needed to slow the rapid growth of our install base so that we can respond to feedback and still have time to iterate on the product. Our primary goal is to make Xobni Insight ready for public beta as soon as possible.

We are now operating an invitation-only beta of Xobni Insight. If you didn’t get a chance to download it yesterday, you can sign-up for an invitation at:

I think I’m going to be spending a lot of time on email today. Here is my mail traffic graph courtesy of Xobni Analytics. As you can see, I have my work cut out for me:
