Did you know that Kitely was running in stealth mode in February 2009 and pre-launch in May 2010? The first live record in the Wayback Machine is April 2011. The first Welcome to Kitely blog went live on April 20th by which time the grid was just under four weeks old. Graham looks at calendar and pauses to count on fingers.
Ilan confirms that Kitely launched in beta on 27th March 2011. According to the blog the service moved out of beta when the billing system was completed on 2nd February 2012.
Thanks to Graham Mills for the birthday hats!
