Flowit is a project of Paleoflow, LLC, a company founded by me, Josh Rolph, in 2011. When the Paleo diet craze took off shortly after Paleoflow’s founding, I began toying with the name of “flowit” as a company-name substitute.
At one time, this site had a simple google-search-like interface that converted inputted text into bumper sticker style images. Fortunately, the web archive saved an image of it here. And the code is freely available for anyone who is interested in partnering up for flowit 2.0.
These 30 character micro-tweets randomly generated twelve colorful image options that each displayed the text in unique fonts. The images could be shared on Twitter and Facebook.
There was a grand plan behind all of this but I never actually shared it with anyone because I was feeling “feature fever,” a sort of paranoid sickness suffered by startup-types that compels you to add just a few more crucial features before launching. One day, the site no longer worked, and the site support was gone, so I suspended the tech ideas in favor of writing. Then I began podcasting.
I will hold on to flowit.co in case another use for it comes along. In the meantime, check out the blog and podcast!
