I used to stay in Matt's house in NYC when he was a hustlin' startup noob. And Matt you have come a long way, you are doing awesome things with SpeakerText man.

Thanks man. Much appreciated. And you can still crash at my house, even if I'm in SOMA :)

Cool story, bro.

Came to post here the same.

A query though, I liked the SpeakerText.com layout etc, and being a noob, couldn't figure out what tech/lang could have been used to create the site (tried looking at the source :-/)

HTML/CSS is a standard - you can't tell what generated it because it's all the same, unless it sucks.

URL structure will give you clues sometimes.

Haha I came here to post Cute story, bro.

Congrats, I actually randomly clicked on this link on HN and had no clue it was you. Do people recognize you anymore?

depends on the person, i guess

your product reminded me of a great Ukrainian startup Viewdle. They had won the Le Web startup competition in 2008.

Great story man, keep up the hustle!
