Business description: Posterous is the dead simple way to put anything online using email. We launched in July 2008 and we've been steadily growing and adding features. We love sharing thoughts, photos, audio, and files with our friends and family, but we didn't like how hard it was... so we made a better way. That's posterous. We're super excited to see what happens when blogging becomes as easy as email, and we hope you enjoy posterous as much as we do. Thanks for trying it.
