RescueTime Hits Silicon Valley

Not a lot of people know this, but RescueTime was built on a part-time basis.  We’d steal time in evenings, on weekends, and sometime on vacation to build what we’ve created to date.  Add this to assorted travels around the holidays and we’ve been positively slammed.  With the volume of new users we’ve gotten, it’s been all we could do to keep up with bug-fixing and customer communication.

This is about to change.

I’m happy to announce that, for the first time, the RescueTime team is working on this full-time.  We’ve quit our jobs, dropped our consulting gigs, and actually moved down to Silicon Valley (from Seattle, WA) to focus on RescueTime.

What does this mean?  You’re likely to start seeing dramatic improvements in performance, new features, and a heckuva lot more communication on this blog.  Stay tuned!

    Hello, my first comment here.

    I must say i was stunned by your idea (at first maybe a bit suspicious and jealous about my private data). I’m actually doing the same (working full time, developing my own darling after work with friends). Keep up the good work.
