I have not been writing nearly enough about many of the cool things that our portfolio companies are doing. To correct that I will start doing Feature Friday posts. The opener is the feed introduced earlier this week by Shapeways.
I love activity feeds. They are a fun way to see what’s happening on a site. But more than that, I have come use them in board meetings as way to think about what a company does (even if they don’t yet have a feed). It’s a powerful way to organize one’s thinking about existing and future features. And I guess we really have to thank Facebook for popularizing the activity feed concept (someone please correct me here if there is an earlier equally well known one).
Please go and checkout the Shapeways feed, which they cheekily call the “Feed of the Future” (as in: “the future of stuff”)
