Dan Provost on how he and Tom Gerhardt took the Glif idea and shipped a product in 5 months:

One thing that has greatly pleased Tom and I about the the success of this project is its inherent simplicity: we are just two guys who made something people want to buy, and then we sell it to them. No middle men, no big corporations, no venture capital, no investments. I think beyond the interest in the Glif itself, people like to know where things are coming from, and the story behind it. So thanks for letting us tell our story.

They have no manufacturing experience, but using the Internet and common sense they made it happen — amazing. Inspiring story for everyone (myself included) that has an idea, but doesn’t know how to get it going.
