HackerNews launch

Dimitri Merejkowsky @dmerej

We launched FileKit on Hacker News and it got to the first page!

It took us several attempts to get there, though. Here's what we learned:

  • You need a catchy title. If you don't have a catchy title, no-one will
    click the link.

  • If you mention encryption in the browser, Hacker News readers will
    complain about the safety of code in the browser in general, and
    Javascript in particular. We gave a
    talk

    to adress those comments,
    and we are writing an article about it for the future.

  • Don't hesitate to submit multiple times in the same week if you have to
