Disclosure: I am friends with the founder of Clay, so while my goal is to be objective this article should be read with that in mind.
Clay is a “a beautiful and private rolodex that helps you remember and be more thoughtful with the people in your life.” It’s basically a purpose-built replacement for the Airtable that Peter uses.
Peter is an investor and a beta user, and he agreed to show me how he uses it in his own life.
The app is in private beta, and as far as I know, this is the first time anyone from the public has been able to see it in action.

Editors note: the screenshots are of dummy data, not Peter’s actual instance for privacy reasons.
