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.
