Ventures that come and go

For the founder parade I was going to talk about the founders of ‘Chomp’; a really useful search engine of apps i came across  . However, as it was not related to education, I changed my mind. I was going to share the site with you for this week, but it’s gone! Apparently Apple bought it at the beginning of the year, and has now decided to phase it out (. I guess I was right it was a good venture, so much so Apple preferred to buy them out and shelve them to avoid competition for them. Maybe when thinking of ventures, it’s not always necessary to think of something totally new, but rather of something that will compete with something existing. Isn’t that why Facebook bought Instagram?
