Press Roundup: What’s the Buzz?
- We were covered twice on MakeUseOf: once exclusively and once in a list of other cool tools.
- Getting accepted into the Portland Seed Fund generated a flurry of press, including Bethany’s picture in the print version of an article in the Oregonian.
- Being featured on Kevin Kelly’s Cool Tools was a Big Deal for us (that’s this Kevin Kelly; note his seminal involvement in the Quantified Self community).
- Mark Sisson including us in a list of tools for helping you reach health and fitness goals introduced us to a less nerdy audience.
- We have to include David Seah for his over-the-top flattery of our blog  (even if this post is not what he had in mind!) in his coverage of Beeminder.
- Then we met Danny O’Brien, coiner of the term “lifehacking”. He is covered in awesomesauce. He wrote a delightful article about us in The Irish Times.
- Next was this amazingly thoughtful writeup by our francophone hardware nerd counterparts over at Withings.
- Graduating from the Portland Seed Fund got us another spate of press.
- And most recently, we were finally covered on LifeHacker!
And for completeness, here’s an exhaustive list of all the coverage we’re aware of as of the halfway point of 2012: Frances Archer (from our Kibotzer days!), Messy Matters (if that counts), Quantified Self, O’Reilly Radar, Mark Forster, MakeUseOf (and again), Jake Jenkins, The Oregonian, The Portland Business Journal, Silicon Florist, Kevin Kelly’s Cool Tools, Crunchbase, Nancy Friedman, Mark’s Daily Apple, Simple Productivity, Genuine Curiosity, David Seah, About Project Management (and again and again), Jessica Suarez, Phil Newton, Robert Wiblin, Health Demystified (and direct link to a Youtube interview), Guide to Surviving Grad School (and again), The Irish Times, Speedy Snail, Startup Tunes, Todd Herman, John Millikin, Withings Blog, Quantified Self Berlin (in German), Live To Close, Webware Hub, Geek Wire, The San Francisco Chronicle, Chirpify, I Want An App That…, The Employable, and, of course, LifeHacker.
UPDATE: A more recent press roundup.
 “The [Beeminder] blog is an amazing trove of writing about goal setting, written in an accessible magazine-like style — sort of an academic version of The Atlantic — that’s far more nutritious than the usual 10 WAYS TO MEET GOALS WITH A KITCHEN TIMER list articles rattling around the Internet. It’s smart, amusing, and generously filled with citations so you can learn more. I like it a lot.”
