Favorites Spotlight: LDC (Local Data Company)

9 Dec

In my previous post on Yipit, I briefly mentioned how they are one of my new ‘favorites’. I thought I might as well go over some of my favorite companies.

LDC is a company I ran into about a year ago, and they are doing some amazing stuff up in the UK. Eschewing the model of large stores of data, they have found a ‘niche’ (retailers) and have done an amazing job collecting, collating, and continuously updating that data. Talking to Scott via email is always a learning experience – he pulls out random relationships in data that I had never considered before.

Not only has his company done a fantastic job in getting this data, but their client-list and where they are headed is most impressive. Just the logistical nightmare of organizing this is kinda scary.

So consider this a salute to Scott and his team. Kudos.
