Kelly Sutton and I usually come up with one or two interesting ideas each week, and usually while we’re grabbing a cup of coffee. Last night we launched one of them. CourseBoss is an assignment sharing and collection service for university professors. 

If you’ve taken the step and launched something, you’re well aware that irrational excitement for new ideas is usually temporary. We wanted to build CourseBoss insode of that honeymoon period, so we gave ourselves a hard deadline of 2 weeks. Instead, we actually managed to go from idea to launch in 11 days.

Ladies and gentlemen,’s director of product and’s newest developer.
