23 – The core thing


Things are out of our hands right now. Filippo is coding from a strict spec sheet. It’s kinda scary, the spec sheet. It’s like our dream has been annotated, analysed and rewritten into a text book. I’m hoping the magic that surrounds the idea isn’t lost.

There’s a bunch of stuff we’re leaving out; a load of little animations that were in the demo video won’t be there to start with. As well as some big and obvious features.

The core idea of Story though, will be there.

The core of the thing, is made up of three parts (I doubt this’ll ever change):

  1. Discover screen (where we feature the best stories out there)
  2. Feed screen (everyone you follow, their stories appear here)
  3. Create screen (where you create your stories)
These are the three core things of Story that will be there in their rawest form from day one. Everything else is an added feature that isn’t vital right now.We’re meeting Filippo next week for the first time since he started coding. He’ll have 1 and 2 ready.
