The Evolution of 2u.fm

I’ve been asked a number of times how 2u.fm changed during development, and sure enough, I have a little peek:

2u.fm evolving over 7 months and 88 screenshots

As I was developing 2u.fm I started informally taking screenshots of the homepage every so often. I actually accidentally deleted four months or so of earlier screenshots in a desktop cleanup incident :(…

It was really fun just for me to keep, and I even found inspiration in old designs as I went. I’d had loved to have automated it. A headless browser command line tool + capistrano hook would be awesome.

Also note: Some screenshots are slightly out of order, but generally the dates on the bottom are accurate.
