Today we wrapped up FeedBlocker. Hallelujah 💃 🕺!!!!

We updated the site to include a “How it works” section, added a link to our weekly entries, and included a favicon (that’s the icon that shows up on the browser tab).

It has been a fun project and we learnt a few things from the experience. We learned that it is important to identify the problem first then the solution after. We learned that teamwork is key to success, the mix of different skill sets produce a great product. We learned that we love to solve problems and will continue our search to find everyday problems and solve them using products/services that we would want to use ourselves. Stay tuned for more and let us know if you have any specific topics you’d like us to spend our precious Saturday mornings exploring!

Today was a great day.

First, I think it’s worth noting that we spent a full hour discussing topics not related to Feedblocker. Discussing topics such as how clubhouse could be a new dating platform, financing large tech start-ups, applying concepts from industrial engineering at scale…

Google rejected last week’s submission. Thank goodness. It is not what we planned, but it aligned with today’s goals. Let me explain.

Last week, we submitted an updated version of our extension that only included the revised icon without rounded corners. Knowing the submission was incomplete…

Today was a good day. It started with the good news that Google accepted our submission! Given the quality of our submission last week, the acceptance was a pleasant surprise to all of us. We’ll take it.

So today we decided to improve our icon, and…

Today we launched our LinkedIn feed blocker. Well, sort of. At the moment, it’s up to Google. Let me explain. We planned to make the chrome extension we developed last week available on the chrome store for the public to download. …

Today we agreed to build a Google Chrome extension to block feeds on the LinkedIn homepage. The purpose of wanting to build this extension is to reduce distraction. We agree that sometimes it is hard to focus on an original intention of visiting a website if…
