MATT from Carsonified - Hype Much?
I will bet I am not the only one thinking this, but do you not think that Carsonifieds new “web app” is a little bit too much hype and not enough substance? I mean really, how many people actually have multiple Twitter accounts?
Billed as “Multiple account twitter tweeting”, Ryan Carson and the gang spent the past 4 days creating a web app from the ground up, this they have to be congratulated for. Mike Kus’ design is not only gorgeous but has great character, Keir and Elliot look like they put some serious work into the backend, all of which has to be commended. But for a team of 10 people to drop everything and spend four days building an app that, let’s be honest, lacks mass market appeal in the Twitter-space, cost $10,000 and will likely see zero ROI, seems a bit superfluous.
I’m not wanting to rain on their parade, don’t get me wrong, Matt looks great and works perfectly fine and I absolutely respect Ryan, Keir and Carsonified, but like many others I was looking forward to their next big app-in-a-week just as much as the next person, but this... I was a little disappointed with.
Keir sums it up best himself:
The app is in many ways secondary to the experience. The end result showed how a team of people with diverse skills can pull together and achieve something great within a given time period.
