Techcrunch did an early writeup on bit.ly bundles, a new product from bit.ly that I worked on all summer as an intern at Betaworks.
There is a simple rule on the Internet when it comes to passing links around: the easier it is to share links, the more links will be shared. Bit.ly and other URL shorteners proved this with their billions of links repackaged for a 140-character world. Later today or tomorrow, bit.ly will be introducing a new feature called bit,ly bundles which lets you shorten a bunch of links into one single bit.ly link. Don’t pretend like this isn’t your dream come true.
A couple days into my internship I was asked to help design a new product to share multiple bit.ly links. A couple days before my internship ended, I was demoing an early prototype of what you see here. 99% of my time in the betaworks office was dedicated to bundles. I feel like bundles was my baby, though I was not working alone. The prototype team consisted of Jason Morrow, Neil Wehrle, Nina Khosla, and myself. After my internship ended, the prototype was passed off to production.
