FastComments began its life in a hotel room thousands of miles from home. Tired of working on slow enterprise
would-be founders threw around ideas of how nice it would be to build a software company where the quality and
simplicity of the resulting
software was one of the metrics for success. Many companies confuse big, complicated products with success, and
forget that you can
make billions selling a simple product like toilet paper. So, we picked something simple that we would use, and
started selling it.
Unfortunately reliable and fast software is not always simple to create, and FastComments is one of those cases,
we make sure we
steer toward our goals and not away.
We're a small team, wearing many hats, but we hope you enjoy what we create as much as we love making it.
