Another week, another list of links. Mostly product development and design related.
I came across beautiful graphic on the change in usage share of Internet browsers from 1996-2019. It also shows that when it comes to business / innovation, you don’t always have to be the first to do something. You just need to do it better. I also found myself loving the quote at the end ie. “data is beautiful”.
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that I love newsletters. Email Love is a collection of landing pages for email newsletters. It’s a wonderful resource for design inspiration, as well as for HTML templates specific for email sign-ups.
Another website for design inspiration – humans.fyi. This website features homepage website designs. The people whose websites are listed are web designers/developers or makers. Besides being a design inspiration, it’s another great way to discover interesting people to follow.
For those looking to develop content-focused products, Nieman Lab’s article on how those under 35 use news apps is insightful. No surprise, Instagram was the primary app used. The only news app that made it to the top 25 used list was Reddit. The sample size for this study was pretty small though — 20 people between the ages of 18-35.
When it comes to fundraising, there are some things that venture capitalists/builders look for. Early stage VC Parul Singh has a checklist that’s helpful for those looking to raise money for their seed rounds.
