This is pretty cool! Would love to see this in more areas - app developers, bot makers, etc Love how on some of the profiles I can see a h/t to Product Hunt :)

This is really cool. I actually saw it the other day when @levelsio shared his story. I really hope you maintain the transparency and curated element of the site as it makes for incredibly high quality content and a great read.
