When asked if he would mind his startup being described as "a Tumblr for designers and developers," Forrst founder and developer Kyle Bragger said he wasn't sure, but that he probably wouldn't mind. After all, that is precisely what his product is - a community where users can share their links, pictures and text in a micro-blog format, with a little Stack Overflow-style Q&A thrown in. This budding startup has quickly gathered a unique and loyal community of designers and developers that are sharing thousands of posts and comments each day, and today I had to chance to chat with its founder.

Built on Inspiration - Damn, hopefully this means the age of interface and design is slowly turning into a revolution. I don't want to to hear anymore Ribbon is designed to make it easier for users. Let designers/developers credit the real well designed interfaces.

Sounds interesting. It's too bad you can't even look at the site until you join. Makes it hard to know whether or not you'd want "in" unless you already knew a member.

But I guess that's part of the reason for having an 'invitation only' membership policy isn't it? ;D
