On week ago, Mark Hemeon (co-founder of Tiiny) posted a nice article on Medium to tell the story of the app he co-created: from the idea, to the its iteration till pixels and code. Call it the making of Tiiny, if you like it. He wrote: “With any project we take on, we like to start by giving the idea a name. Tiiny was originally called “Blink”. Blink sounds fast, simple and low friction. Blink calls to mind the old saying “If you blink, you might miss it” and felt like the perfect name. However, the more we said “Blink” the more it stressed us out. We wanted the app to feel fun, no pressure. We changed the name to Tiiny, reused from a past project Kevin and I worked on together. Tiiny was a perfect name. It described the size and length of time of each post, was friendly and the complete opposite of an eyestrain.”
