Ryan Hoover
@rrhoover · Founder, Product Hunt
Product Hunt started around a simple idea: to help people discover and share awesome new products. Today, we're a global community of tech enthusiasts, emoji lovers, and makers. Without you, we would not be where we are today. That is why you deserve to know the truth about the early days. We wrote a book about the true story of Product Hunt, the details of which are being revealed for the first time ever. It's told in a short, coffee table book style format, through a series of images, and explores how parking garages around the world inspired what Product Hunt is today. You can get the book on Amazon, and we thank BuzzFeed for kindly offering to help publish The Parking Book in print version.

@rrhoover This is what truly sealed the deal in the AngelList-Product Hunt merger.
@rrhoover Please, Please, Please tell me it includes some juicy details of: • how you stole the idea from some twins you went to college with, or • how your original founders are now all estranged, or • how Yahoo passed on an offer to buy you for a bargain price, or • how you put parking garages out of business because why be happy with the limited selection when you could choose from thousands of parking garages, or • that you gave no stock options to one of your employees and your fellow founder had to make up for it out of his own shares, or...
