Hey, thanks for hunting this! Basically, I was inspired by the Product Hunt leaderboard, and thought it would be cool to mashup the Product Hunt makers and hunters with their matching stats on AngelList and Twitter. The result is a people discovery mechanism for startup enthusiasts. Who Hunt enables you to leverage some interesting data about top hunters, makers influencers. It's a work in progress, so let me know what comments/questions you have.

@carolskelly really cool. Have been using since past 2 hours. Ques- what happens when I follow someone on WeHunt? What features you guys are thinking to add?
Carol Skelly@carolskelly · Maker / developer
@rgupta29 thanks. You can find the people you've followed in your "Profile" (click your avatar in the upper right corner). This makes it easier to find them later and see their updates, but this area will be getting a lot of improvement. I also intend to show the follower updates on the home page, along with collections of people (ie; "Angels", "Designers", etc..)
Would you recommend Who Hunt to a friend?

This reminds me of wefollow, a site @kevinrose created shorter after Twitter started blowing up. More investors are looking "earlier in the funnel" to source good talent (see Bloomberg's Future Founders project). A tool like this (but more data-driven like Mattermark, cc @daniellemorrill) could be very useful for VC's/investors seeking to build relationships with talented people (pre or post-founding a company). I'm curious what the long term plan is for Who Hunt.

@rrhoover Thanks Ryan. Mattermark looks cool, and it's really interesting to consider all of the possible data and metrics. One challenge that remains is the ability to provide something useful and relevant out of the firehose of information__ whether it's people (or products). In the short term, I see adding more related profile data to the WhoHunt profiles. Perhaps matching Quora, Reddit, StackExchange, etc.. I also thought'd be interesting to have some ability to edit the metadata/tagging around any given Who Hunt profile to improve discovery. I'm also considering different ranking algorithms so that there's better opportunity to for new founders/startups to grow and "show-off" there stuff.

I've been seeing more data mashups. Its a great idea to better show relationships that exist that you might be able to track individually, but now can do in bulk. Also going to be a good tool for startups to find funders for things similar to what they're building

@sacbookreviewer - Thanks for your comments. I hadn't thought of "a tool for startups to find funders for things similar", but that may be another direction for Who Hunt.

today found it quite useful for inviting people to Product Hunt Moscow meetup. The only thing: it sorts according to # of twitter followers and doesn't really show the "score" on producthunt, as many people just registered there and never upvoted anything, others spend quite a lot of time.
