Hi, I'm Brad Daily from Koken / SlideShowPro


Hello all! This is a great idea. I feel like I’ve read more substance here than the last 3 months of Hacker News, but I’m sure that doesn’t surprise anyone here. :smile:

In February of 2005, I watched from my chilly Montreal apartment as Todd Dominey released SlideShowPro. Since it wasn’t fit for man nor beast outside, I had nothing better to do than create a super simple CMS for SlideShowPro. I called it SSPAdmin (never let developers name things) and sold it on my own for a year or so before Todd and I joined forces to create SlideShowPro Director, a slideshow publishing system still used by many on their own servers and our SlideShowPro.com SaaS.

For the last few years, we’ve been working on something new: Koken. Koken is a web publishing tool built specifically for photographers and other creative DIYs. It’s free and in public beta right now.


Hi Brad, I’ve heard about you from Todd, but great to finally virtually meet. Welcome to the group.


Hi Brad. I as well have heard of you. Nice to meet you.
