Skittish Hosts Its First Public Events

Last month, we reached a big milestone for Skittish, the playful virtual space for online events I’ve been working on over the last few months: we hosted our first big public events, including the delightful !!Con, New Relic’s FutureStack conference, the Flatpack Festival, and Future of the Browser, among others.

This was a bit of a marathon, allowing us to see how Skittish worked in the real world in a variety of different events, from film screenings and unconferences to livestreamed talks and dance parties. Throughout it all, we continually tweaked and tuned it every day, making changes and fixing issues as they came up.

The result was a huge wave of new features and development in May, which I wrote about over at the Skittish blog, along with a new feature article from TechCrunch and my FutureStack talk about it all. Go check it out!

This is likely the last big update before we start sending out invites to the announcement list and opening the doors to the public. If you’re interested, you can sign up at, subscribe to the news blog, or follow @SkittishHQ on Twitter and Instagram to follow along.
