Announcing Product Hunt

I’m always on the hunt to find new compelling products, not just for fun but to learn. As a product person, it’s important to “live in the future“ and follow market trends. Playing with new products can reveal new insights and inspire new ideas. And the earlier you discover and use these products, the better. But finding the gems isn’t easy (ask any investor).

So I’m assembling an invite-only group of product people to share cool new mobile and web apps worth looking at.

How it Works

1) Contributors submit a link to their product discovery using Makeshift’s linkydink tool. Submissions can be posted to the Product Hunt group or simply emailed to a private email alias.

2) Once per day, the collection of products and links are emailed to subscribers with attribution of who made the submission.


I am limiting contributors to keen product people I know and admire. I may open it to a wider audience in the future so if you’re interested in contributing, send me an email at

Two rules:

1) Don’t state the obvious. E.g. everyone knows about Snapchat.

2) Don’t repeat past product entries (if you can help it).
