The Formerly A Bit Secretive, Now All Up On YouTube World Of Diary Hunters

Diaries come from estate sales and garage sales, from where they get bought and sold on eBay or elsewhere online. Some buyers read them as a series on their YouTube channels; others collect them for more altruistic reasons. “Although the trend is undeniably voyeuristic, many collectors have a grander purpose. Polly North is the 41-year-old director of the Great Diary Project. Since 2007, she has rescued more than 10,000 of them.” – The Observer (UK)

Lead Edge Capital, a software-focused venture firm with one office in New York and another in California, was founded just 11 years ago.
