📂 The Anti-Portfolio

Bessemer maintains this page of companies they passed investing on. I like the idea of publicly acknowledging your big misses or errors as an organizational accountability tool. Some big names here like eBay, Airbnb, Google, and FedEx.

Almost a year ago I shared a link to the first version of Downlink. The main feature added here is you can create your own custom views by putting a bounding box around your area of interest. Then you’ll get a live look at the Earth as your desktop background.

🐦 nucoll

A collection tool for retrieving and analyzing Twitter data. I’ve seen some neat social network analyses shared from folks that have used this to map degree relationships between Twitter accounts.
