Insights from Alan

  • "We want Joy to feel like a part of your home and disappear into your living space. When you want to use Joy it should be seamless; Always accessible and at your fingertips." 
  • "We've been sold the idea that more apps, features, and ports are better.  We have to remove unnecessary features to move towards a world of more simplicity. Technology is a part of our lives. We shouldn't have to step out of our lives to use it."
  • On advice from Ev Williams: "People on the internet love and want to do the exact same things they have always done. Our job is to remove steps and make it easier."
