Note Of Thanks To Seeking Alpha

Tonight the leadership of Seeking Alpha gave some of its contributors (including me) an introduction to the financial apps they're building into their platform. 

I think the apps are a cool way for contributors to tailor content.  Readers of Seeking Alpha can even custom tailor a dashboard to their liking.  Their pricing model will likely follow a "dim sum" approach in contrast to the "buffet" model of data purveyors like Bloomberg that offer all-in-one platforms. 

I'm not sure if I'll use any of the apps yet.  I'll have to digitally kick the tires on each one to see if they add something to my articles.
