    For their vertical famo.us had a number I don't recall but I think their list of real developers wanting their platform was 100k. That's real developers and it was a closed list no one had source code yet for the JS engine. Very impressive for what's essentially a library!

    The Grid is crushing it right now. Over 33,000 paid* sign ups pre-launch is very impressive.
