Who are you?
I'm Sydney Liu. I finished my sophomore year of USC before leaving with my co-founder to go full time on our startup, which did eHarmony for Jobs (we worked with the founding Chief Scientist of eHarmony). We had clients like Tinder, Meerkat, Zenefits, DoorDash and more. Ultimately shut down one of our side projects started to grow. Today I am full time on Commaful I focus on growth, community, retention, front-end development, and design.
Co-Founder of Commaful, a site that allows teens to express themselves with short text snippets and visuals. Imagine slideshows with GIF backgrounds. Our first demographic has been mostly creative teen girls who love to write.
I'm also behind @commaful
What are you up to these days?
Full time on Commaful. Talking to users, building, testing, and designing! We are based in Palo Alto.
What most interests you in tech these days?
I've always been fascinated with education and the evolving media landscape, especially the dance between Snapchat, Facebook as distribution platforms and large media companies, including companies in the new media like Buzzfeed.
