First let me say, one of the best ways to get authority links is to help people, or be the first to notify people about a possible problem. Thus a big thanks to James at Online IT Guide for sending me an email to let me know of a potential hack of my Twitter account.
I first heard about Cloudflare when they presented at Techcrunch Disrupt. I am not writing about every startup that presented there, just a couple that caught my eye as something that I think will have a significant impact for my readers.

That is $33 Million down the drain in research, development, infrastructure for the search engine crawlers etc.
