Well, we got 5th place

2 Comments

We got 5th place and a $300 consolation prize in the LendingClub contest, taking me back to memories of competing in the flag-football Toilet Bowl in junior high (and losing). No, in all seriousness, I’m thrilled that we were able to get a Facebook group of 376 people together over the weekend. I’ll use the full $300 for an upcoming iwillteachyoutoberich scholarship.

Thanks, everyone.

[Edit]: Oh, also, Renaud (LendingClub CEO) asked me to check if any of my readers are interested in blogging for blog.lendingclub.com. If you’re interested, email me with your blog URL and a short introductory email, and I’ll introduce you to Renaud. The position is for 30% time (~13 hours/week) and is paid.
