Yapamp blog is go!

Aaaand its working. Huzzah. Get on the dance floor.

Good. So, it’s been a while since I started coding Yapamp – almost 5 months in fact, and the site has been in live alpha for almost 2 months in one form of another. A lot of things happened in that time, feature wise. In its current state Yapamp has a few of the basic things I want, seems to work okay, and has a handful of registered users. Now that there’s something to talk about, I will.

In the programming/startup world its kind of a no-no to try doing any kind of social network – its notorious for being one of the default bad get rich ideas that every other person and their dog wants to take a run at. People will advise you against it, not because most of the established ideas are particularly hard to code, but because its near impossible to get people to use the thing and keep doing so. There are a lot of notorious failures, not to mention the immeasurable number of flops that will barely have gotten off the ground before crashing in a spectacular inferno of investment funding or flounces of development apathy.

But one of the benefits of being a lone programmer is you can take a stab at these things with nothing to lose, except your own time (and sanity), and for no other reason than making stuff with computers is awesome.

So here it is, a blog that will record the journey of Yapamp – statistically doomed as it may be. I think I have a lot of great ideas to make the thing work, or at least be fun to create, and I’ll be documenting every step in, hopefully, as much of a candid and personal manner as I can.

Here goes. Get psyched! (?)
