23andMe – I first heard about this company from Esther Dyson who is on the board of this company which according to their website allows ” individuals understand their own genetic information using recent advances in DNA analysis technologies and web-based interactive tools.” I’ve not yet personally tried their products but am considering it. With that said, consider the Irec to really mean recommend checking our finding more about. It’s not necessarily and endorsement of their products or services.
Snag Films – “SnagFilms.com is a website where you can watch full-length documentary films for free, but we’re also a platform that lets you “snag” a film and put it anywhere on the web” (Snag Films website).
Kickstarter – ” Kickstarter is a new way to fund creative ideas and ambitious endeavors. Kickstarter is powered by a unique all-or-nothing funding method where projects must be fully-funded or no money changes hands” (Kickstarter website). I would like to see some of my artist friends consider using Kickstarter.
