In November 2013, Dan gave a talk to his local college and as part of that, created a list of a few of the books, apps and websites he had saved in his bookmarks that he thought would be a great resource guide for the students. Luckily Dan wrote the list on Medium and made it public. The post was named “Resources” and at the time had just over 80 items.
Over the next few months the list grew and grew, and in April 2014 over 230 resources had been added. Some discovered by Dan but most were contributed by people via Medium or Twitter.
The post became incredibly popular and at the time of writing, has had over 170,000 visits and over 1,700 recommendations. It was clear that this was something that people valued and wanted to be a part of, and more importantly contribute to.
