As more individuals have the need to share material online with others, developers continue to come up with new ways to post items. Posterous allows users to post things online using email. It allows a member to share text, audio, photos, and other files. The site's developers, Sachin Agarwal and Garry Tan join Phil and Scott to talk about how the service was developed.
They review the architecture of the process, including the security methods in place to protect people. They also review their business model as well as how they plan to move forward.
