Presenting Ketchup — a Simple Meeting Notes App

I'm pleased to announce the early-adopter, open release of a project I've been working on over the last few months: Ketchup.

Ketchup is a web app for storing meeting notes.

It's designed to be easy to use. We've purposely only designed the simplest features, from the outset. Over the next couple of months, the plan is to listen closely to feedback and shape the product into a powerful, useful and valuable tool.

In terms of philosophy, the app is designed around three principles:

  1. "Do little, insanely well."
  2. Pay close attention to visual design and details.
  3. "Not Saving Changes" ... every detail is saved once it's created or changed.

...heavily inspired by John Gruber.

The underlying goal of the software so far has been to be the place to put your meeting notes.

Ketchup has been in private access mode for a while. There are so many things that could hold me up putting it out into the world, polishing further details, adding more little features. But I've decided to just ship now, with the simplest working implementation.

If you'd like to try it out, it's open for signups now at http://useketchup.com.

Huge thanks and kudos to Brian Flanagan, who's worked insanely well on the design of the app.
