DuckDuckGo founder Gabe Weinberg looks back on his three years as an angel investor and details how his investment strategy has changed since he started investing, in a recent post on his popular personal blog.

One main change, he says, is that he’ll be focusing on Philly, leaving a “location agnostic” stance and looking particularly in the consumer space. The Valley Forge resident explains the renewed interest in Philly by mentioning First Round Capital’s move to the city and says the tech scene “keeps getting better.”

Among the startups he and his wife have used their initial $250,000 to invest in was DreamIt Ventures graduate Notehall, a marketplace for college notetaking that sold off last summer.
