This was a weekend project. I've been collecting these stories and posting them to Medium. I decided to put them on their own domain so they are easily searchable/sortable. You can learn a lot about preparing to be featured on Product Hunt. Some of the makers have been kind enough to give very detailed reports of their traffic/sales/funding as a result of being "hunted". There are some really awesome and enlightening stories there.

Let me know if they are other things you would like to see added in the future. I'm considering doing a mashup of AngelList, Crunchbase so we can see funding data. I'm also considering different ways to sort the stories (team size, bootstrapped, funded, whether the company was launched on PH or not).

Give me more to do so that I can continue to feed my Product Hunt addiction.

@kikischirr @erictwillis we've got a virtuous cycle going on here where you 2 and PH all win :)
