Thanks for the reviews and thoughts!
I was finally organizing some of the files scattered throughout my hard drive, and came across the below image. I think it was the first mock-up of Zapatag.com, thrown together in the spring of 2007, soon after I’d decided I liked the name better than Streetr.com.
I’d been on Twitter for a few months, so you can see how the “big form front and center” was already set in my mind. But I’d devoted most of the homepage to “featured” content (the old-fashioned editorial guy in me), and put the activity feed in the right sidebar. I also had more prominent images… something I’m still pondering for the site. What stands out the most for me, of course, is the stereotypical turquoise-and-pink Flickr-inspired color scheme.
