Goodbye Gowalla

So the news is out, Gowalla has been acquired by Facebook. I’m very happy for them, and am sure they’ll do great work at The Big Blue.

The 18 months I worked for Gowalla were the most fun times I’ve ever had. The team, the product, the users; it all added up to a great experience where I learned more than I could ever wish for.

But I won’t be joining them. Instead I’m proud to announce I accepted an offer from Instagram. I’ve been a longtime fan of the dead-easy photo-sharing service and couldn’t be more excited to be designing for them.
