Shutting down the studio
I’ve always secretly enjoyed retiring computing systems.
Over 10 years ago, catching public transportation in Hawaii was hard. Having just given up my car, I originally wrote allb.us to help make that transition more palpable.
I’m a little nostalgic because the site was always a reminder to me of all the things I had going on at the time; working at a small startup, helping start Honolulu’s first makerspace, and negotiating a move to NYC.
I finally decided to retire allb.us after all these years because:
- I finally had some free time
- Monthly $20 is now $40
- Multitude of better transit apps in the marketplace
All good things must come to an end.
After all, that’s the beauty of technology; something better will eventually take its place.
