When we launched SpeakerRate in 2009, our goal was to help people organize, attend, and give better talks. "We" are the team at Viget, a ~70 person digital agency that spends the vast majority of our time on client projects. We work on our own projects under a brand we call Pointless Corp. We’ve worked on a lot of Pointless Projects over the years, but SpeakerRate has so far had the longest run.
With more than 30,000 speakers on the platform, we’ve always felt like we’re doing something right. That said, like many internal projects, SpeakerRate hasn’t received the love it’s deserved. We’re working right now to change that.
In the coming weeks and months you’ll see a variety of changes at SpeakerRate leading up to a complete relaunch. We hope the changes will make it more usable and valuable to everyone. If you’d like to follow along, follow us on Twitter. If you’d like to participate in the process by testing new features and providing feedback along the way, email us at [email protected].
