Metwit is no longer. Metwit was an adventure.
My most important startup experience was a social weather service. At a time when a social networking startup still was a cool thing, we decided to build a service over the most talked about topic ever. It was pretty cool. Many weather services are using similar concepts nowadays. User local weather reporting, user shared media, rich weather maps. It was a number of things, a plethora of fast moving experiments built over the years by a passionate team.
It also was a platform, when it was still cool, or even before that. A scarce number of developers built applications on Metwit API. A scarce number of weather scientists gathered data from Metwit. A scarcer number of people knew this was happening. Because growing a business can go wrong in many ways, and we now have hands-on experience of a significant number of those.
In the end, weather has been stormy all the way.
If you are looking for more information on Metwit, contact me. I’m much nicer than that angry storm cloud.
