We’ve been hard at work since coming out of beta last month, adding new features and making lots of small improvements and fixes.
For the last few weeks, Notist has been open for beta testing. Thanks to great feedback from all corners of the globe, we’ve made some solid improvements, trapped some bugs, and built up a solid list of features we’d all like to see added. We hope it’s been as much fun for you as it has been for us.
Over the last few days we have started to work our way through the queue of signups for Notist, a few at a time. If you reserved your username, you should at some point in the next week or so receive an email to let you know when your account is ready to use.
We really loved Lanyrd as a site for logging the events and conferences we were attending and speaking it. As a conference speaker, much of the content you’ve spent time curating in Lanyrd has crossover with the sort of thing you’d want to store in Notist. As it’s no longer possible to log in to Lanyrd, we’ve fast-tracked a tool to help you grab your data.
When Rachel and I decided to build Notist, we did so out of a need for better tools to support public speakers. We both speak at web design and development conferences (me sometimes, her constantly) and were frustrated with the state of the tools available to us. We figured that if we were frustrated, then others would be too.
