Below is the final goodbye page we posted on Eat.ly notifying our users on 12/17/2010
We began working on Eat.ly in the fall of 2009 as a labor of love, and it quickly turned into a interesting web service that got some traction. Although it was a side project, we dedicated our time and energy into creating something special.
Not long after it began myself, Mike, and Sam B. found ourselves working together again at a slightly larger project that was our sole focus and taking up 100% of our time – Foursquare. We then asked the community what we should do with our project that was too small to fail, and with limited resources soon went after a different outcome.
I learned an enormous amount of things during the course of this project and am thankful for the experience.
I wish the Foodspotting team the best of luck with continuing our mission of tracking meals and our original thesis “data + pictures = change”
