Biz Stone, Twitter Co-Founder, Explains Jelly’s Return (Q&A) | Re/code

A multifaceted sign of the times

"So, earlier this week, Stone announced Jelly 2.0, a return to the team’s original Q&A idea, with a slightly different spin: Instead of posing a question to people you know — a process that can be limiting and possibly embarrassing, depending on the question — Jelly 2.0 will find someone on the app who can answer your question, while simultaneously keeping you anonymous.

“Dear Abby” in the form of a smartphone app.

Stone doesn’t have a product in market yet. He doesn’t even have an official launch date. But he knows what he wants to build, and he’s also aware of what’s at stake.

“Hopefully, the third time’s the charm here,” he said. “I told [co-founder Ben Finkel], ‘We just need to swing for the fences on this one.’ I told Ben, ‘Let’s spend some money. Let’s go crazy on this, because if this doesn’t work, then we’re screwed.'”"
