The company was called Danger, the platform was called hiptop, and what follows is an account of our early days, and a list of some of the “modern” technologies we shipped years before you could buy an iOS or Android device.
I’m interested by situations where even providing a great solution just isn’t enough. Solving tons of problems, offering a better way to manage aspects of life is the mission of many businesses. But the world just doesn’t care.
Some massive problems will continue forever, no matter what technology companies arise to solve them or how good their team is. This isn’t meant to be depressing, I think it’s just something that must be accepted when trying to make a dent in the universe.
Either way, Danger’s story is an interesting one. Enjoy.
