How Sharing Has Become Big Business (Jay Meattle 2010 Fellow)

Current TLP Fellow and founder of Shareaholic, Jay Meattle, was mentioned in a piece in 'NYT's business section today. The article, titled Share the Moment and Spread the Wealth, describes how sharing Internet links has become a big business.

It has been quite the red letter week for Jay's startup, Shareaholic, which makes a popular Firefox plugin that enables Web surfers to share items they come across with many popular services like Facebook, Twitter and Digg. The plucky Firefox plugin has been downloaded over a million times to date. Earlier this week, Shareaholic closed a small round of angel funding from several people in the startup scene in Boston.

Congratulations Jay, and keep up the great work!
