https://bold.io/when-truth-is-re... Hello! 👋 Today we're launching IO: a free, lightweight editor for creative and authentic publishing. ✍️ It's extremely easy to use and allows you to publish anonymously, under a pseudonym, or as yourself. Our vision is to make writing and sharing your thoughts easier than ever. The editor is a little rough around the edges, so be gentle (many improvements are on the way!). We plan to build on this idea in the coming weeks and months. This is your blank canvas. This project (started only a couple weeks ago!) is brought to you by @meanJim, @SirBenLee, and myself – and we have much more to come in the near future! Meanwhile, please do email me at d@bold.io or iMessage me at 949-278-6005 if you have any questions/suggestions or just want to talk product. :-) Meanwhile, kick the tires at https://bold.io today, bookmark it for later and publish freely any time. 👊 More info: https://bold.io/about-io-2016-12-06 P.S., this link is fun: https://bold.io/random

@nivo0o0 @davidbyttow @sirbenlee @bold it is a genius press release :)
@davidbyttow @bold very clean editor, saw it's in React. Any plans to open source it?
@davidbyttow, this is beautiful! Would be perfect if the Grammarly extension worked with it. Any chance of that happening in the future?
@davidbyttow Looking forward to trying it :)
Congrats on the launch, @davidbyttow. I love the ambience feature. 💯

@jackdweck thanks! That was a fun little experiment. :)
What are the differences between IO and Telegraph? To me both seem to be the same 😁

@noxowe Telegraph is cool! I think both have similar goals, we started simple just like Telegraph, but are going in a different direction (I think). Of course, we also put a lot more emphasis on Twitter (with Twitter auth) and some cool stuff to follow. Watch this space!
@davidbyttow Yeah social integrations could help distinguish, just at first when I launched the app it looked almost the same as Telegraph (at least what I remember from like a month ago when it launched and clicked on it)
@noxowe I agree! But I think we look better. 😎
@davidbyttow what is the different direction?
IO/Bold easily has the best writing & editing experience on the web. 👏

@jamesfzhang 🙌 🙌 🙌 , we look up to you guys!
This looks absolutely beautiful! I love how it has ambience settings, a Hemingway editor, Twitter auth. The editor itself is awesome. It's a really great product 👌
@kingpixil Thank you Kabir! 🙏
