This morning, Groove published an interview with me. Reading through my responses to their questions made me misty-eyed as I reflected on my childhood. Iâ€™ve been incredibly fortunate to have parents that supported and encouraged entrepreneurial projects as a child. This interview emphasized a topic thatâ€™s been on my mind: role models. Role models inspire us, give us hope, and create opportunities for others, directly and indirectly.
Announcing a $3M venture fund to invest in your next favorite thing. Product Hunt started as a side project while I transitioned from another startup nearly 4 years ago. The goal was simple: I wanted to share and discover interesting new apps and products with friends. I worked nights and weekends and friends joined to help build the community (of course, without them Product Hunt wouldnâ€™t exist).
Product Hunt started in San Francisco, but from the beginning weâ€™ve operated as a distributed team. Today we work together across 9 timezones, using Slack and Zoom to connect from San Francisco to Bulgaria. Weâ€™re looking to bring onboard one more awesome teammate from across the pond to cover the â€œnight shiftâ€? (between 10pm and 6am Pacific Time).
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
