Haha wow, that was a crazy ride. Thanks to @BenTossell for reeling me in, to @jsneedles for the idea/tech/partnering, @jnsdls, @danielkempe & @nivo0o0 for thoughts along the way < /acceptance speech>. Was a lot of fun. A++ would build again. EDIT: Just threw together some thoughts (mainly tweets) about what happened yesterday: https://medium.com/makers-gonna-...

@fredrivett @bentossell @jnsdls @danielkempe @nivo0o0 SO MUCH FUN!
jonas@jnsdls · Yeah, I don't know either.
@fredrivett @bentossell @danielkempe @nivo0o0 I love it when a plan comes together.

Wow, @jsneedles and @FredRivett. That was fast. I find it really interesting to look back at the conversation between the maker(s) and community of products that eventually didn't make it. As Product Hunt ages, it becomes an increasingly repository of conversation. I like to imagine what the discussion would look like with Mark Zuckerberg when Facebook launched over a decade ago, knowing what he knew then. 😀

@rrhoover @jsneedles @fredrivett For me PH is increasingly becoming a research tool. When I need new kind of software (say project management) I search PH to see what is available. I hope it doesn't get too littered with dead things as time goes by.

@ghromis @rrhoover @jsneedles @fredrivett The explosive growth @ product hunt is intense... it's becoming something new to new people all the time.. I agree, it will be interesting to see where this all goes and when volume increases exponentially.

@ghromis @rrhoover @jsneedles @fredrivett I do the exact same when looking for a new service.
Kelly Kampen@kellykampen · Founder
@peskygeek @ghromis @rrhoover @jsneedles @fredrivett I do this as well. It would be nice to see which ones are no longer "live".
Lucas Grohn@ljgrohn · Redfin, Trainer
@ghromis @rrhoover maybe if this starts becoming an issue we could have a tag to place on the product page that says dead.
Ranit Sanyal@ronnhere · Co-founder @ RedElegant Design Studio
Very much true @ghromis, PH is a great research tool except daily findings to check for a product in need. @rrhoover @jsneedles @fredrivett

@rrhoover @jsneedles @fredrivett Thanks, now how can I get more info about why they died? Lets make it useful... https://giphy.com/gifs/james-fra...

Well this was certainly a fun build.... Kicked off by the announcement of Parse's shutdown... Some of us got to tweeting about finding all the 👻 products from Product Hunt. Check it out! Huge thx to @FredRivett for the design. And @Bentossell for roping him into it 🙌

@bentossell @jsneedles Wow, this should have definitely been around during Halloween. This could have been the flagship product for a whole collection of goodies ;D

Jack Dweck@jackdweck · Product Manager at Unroll.Me
It was incredible to watch this being built on Twitter in real time. From idea to final product in less than 24 hours - amazing! @jsneedles & @FredRivett - great job on finishing this so quickly. Please don’t let Product Haunt die. 😉
