Why I created FileIt.in?


January 2010 I resigned from my day job. The reason: I wanted a productivity tool to manage my knowledge, and I wanted to build it. I am a user of Wordpress, Blogger, Tumblr, Google Wave, Diigo, txtb.in and host of other online tools. But I still missed a tool where I can post bits and pieces of knowledge I gain daily, share it with other users.

What I needed?

  • Quick posting. Bookmarklet is the easiest way to post.
  • Better than bookmarking tools. I wanted to aggregate selective-content from multiple sites to store.
  • Content rendering should be neat.
  • Syntax should be simple to use.
  • Support for tags
  • Support source code highlighting

What I did?

Visualizing the above features, I started building FileIt.in. At this moment, you are seeing this labor of love :-)

So what can you use FileIt.in as?
