We’ve been very busy over the past week with 2 new features which are pretty cool (if I do say so myself). While we get a picture of how people are using the site we wanted to build a few items which are related to what we have, but were just sort of fun or interesting beyond just finding great restaurants.
Neither of these are done yet, although one of them is almost done, so we can’t spill the beans quite yet. I will say that we dropped from 520k restaurants to about 515k as we were cleaning up some bad data, but one of the features required us to get some more places, 10,000 to be specific (so we’re up to 525k). This will all make sense in about a week and a half
Once these 2 features are done we will probably turn our crawler loose again to run wild over the internet looking for more restaurants, we have a very good amount now, but there is certainly more we can do on that end.
