freebie_finder.jpgAndrew Cantino sent me a link to his “Absurdly Cool Freebie Finder”, which is, well, absurdly cool. Cantino developed this beta of Freebie Finder, which is searchable, has an RSS feed, and, since freebies are rated by the community, tries to filter out scams and referral pyramids. It’s updated every few hours. I ordered samples of pet foods for my dog and cat, and some goodies for me too. And then I wondered, who IS this guy? I Googled him, and after following a bunch of links, I absolutely guarantee you that he’s someone we’ll be hearing a lot about.
Cantino is a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He works “primarily in the field of Intelligent Systems, focusing on machine learning.” Noodling around his site led me to his blog, So Many Schemes, which covers “Musings on Technology and Entrepreneurship by a Procrastinating Graduate Student”
