The Reality — Startups Fail

by Drew Meyers on 12:35 pm June 9, 2017

The first true “product” I brought into the world — Oh Hey World — failed. That’s a bit hard to stomach. We contemplated and tried many, many pivots (such as a focus on relocation). Ultimately, the product didn’t solve an urgent or frequent problem for a large enough addressable market to grow and survive in the world. Thus, I had to kill my startup baby. I should have done it 18 months ago (18 months = $3600 out of my pocket). Since I’ve already written extensively about … Read More »

The (Almost) Eulogy of Oh Hey World

by Drew Meyers on 8:00 pm July 10, 2016

[Editor’s note: I originally posted this on the Oh Hey World blog] Over the past few years, I’ve worked on two travel apps – Oh Hey World (OHW) and, more recently, Horizon. This post pertains to the earlier product, OHW. I shared a lot of learnings in my 12 months of learnings on Pando in late 2013. That post was written while still trying to figure out a viable strategy around “community” pages — and before ever deciding take another shot at making community accessible everywhere, for everyone with … Read More »

Get to Know Your Other Geek Estate Community Members

by Drew Meyers on 1:11 pm October 12, 2013

I’ve written several times about connecting with other Geek Estate community members (here and here) using Oh Hey World. A few of you took me up on the offer. Well, since then, we’ve redesigned the concept of “communities” on Oh Hey World. Part of what we are aiming for is to help community members to get to know one another. How? Bigger photos, and requiring responses to a couple questions in order to join. It only takes about 30 seconds to answer them and gives everyone … Read More »

Connect with Nearby Members of the Geek Estate Community

by Drew Meyers on 3:44 pm April 5, 2013

Organizing people online is great, but it’s my firm belief bringing like minded people together in the physical world is where the magic happens. When doers & change makers come together, strong relationships form and great things happen. You all read blogs, or you wouldn’t be reading this post right now. I think you’ll agree the blogs you read regularly represent a fairly strong interest, given you spend your time (your most precious asset) consuming content from the same place day after day. As some of you … Read More »

Oh Hey World – 250 Early Beta Invites Up For Grabs

by Michael Price on 9:00 pm March 12, 2013

When I met Drew Meyers for the first time I was immediately impressed with him as young man intent on soaking up every bit of knowledge a human could consume. He’s a quiet combination of compassion and passion. It’s refreshing to find someone who sees his drive to better himself inextricably tied to a commitment to help others. A rare combination indeed. We’ve been good friends since. Drew acquired this blog after leaving Zillow. They decided to consolidate their blog offerings at the time and … Read More »

A Bit of House Keeping, and a New Travel Website

by Drew Meyers on 12:03 pm August 11, 2012

I know – it’s been a bit quiet around here lately. Over a week since a blog post! I wanted to give some context to why that’s the case. As some of you may know, I’m working full time on a new web startup in the travel vertical. Hence, my focus has been on building Oh Hey World for the past few months (the to do list is beyond long). You may have noticed a few ads for Oh Hey World here over the last few weeks. The … Read More »
