Email Permutator+

January 06, 2016

Email Permutator+
http://metricsparrow.com/toolkit/email-permutator/

This tool is intended to help you find the email addresses of people you need to contact, extending and refining the functionality of the permutator spreadsheet discussed in Rob Ousbey’s excellent post Find (Almost) Anyone’s Email Address.
New Features:

  • Multiple Domains – So you don’t have to run each individually
  • Nickname field – Because your contact may go by either ‘Tom’ or ‘Thomas’
  • Auto Whitespace Removal – In case your copying and pasting gets a little crazy
  • Direct Copy to Clipboard – With the click of a button
  • Shiny Interface – Because it’s nice when tools are pretty
  • Nixed Redundant Emails
    So you’ll never see a middle name based email if you don’t enter a middle name,
    nor a nickname-initial email if it’d be a duplicate of the first-initial email
  • Cross-Domain Prioritization
    To make sure the most likely emails across all entered domains appear first
    (rather than providing all emails for one domain, then the next, and so on)

Fountain – Instant Answers – Ask an Expert Anything, Anywhere, Anytime

Fountain – Instant Answers – Ask an Expert Anything, Anywhere, Anytime
https://www.fountain.com/

Fountain helps you whenever you’re stuck on a problem, by connecting you with a highly rated expert who can help. In under 5 minutes you’ll be connected 1-on-1 through video chat, text and photos with annotation. Whether you have a gardening, plumbing or design project, they have the expert you’re looking for.  Fountain was borne out of Aaron Patzer’s frustration with answering basic questions using the internet. While the internet is great for finding facts and documents, it often falls short for anything personal: home, health, relationships, pets, and anything nuanced: business, personal finance, and legal decisions. By contrast, a live, two-way interactive conversation provides far more useful information – often far faster – than searching, sifting, and endless Googling. The wider goal of Fountain is a new type of search: plain English typed or spoken is understood, and the asker is connected instantly to the person most qualified to answer and assist. We are using artificial intelligence in the service of connecting to the most powerful intelligence: another human. This will be added to Internet Experts Subject Tracer™.
