Geoaffiliate does something I’ve been meaning to add to SciFan, and whether I’ll use that service or end up doing it with another tool, the idea has merit.
I'm CEO of an online trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We try to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is more noisy each day.
