Good startup ideasNovember 6, 2009 at 11:06 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment
Recently I posted the question “What is your best startup idea” on Hacker News. I combined most of the responses plus a few I found lying around the web and put them in an easy-to-read format. If anyone has any additional suggestions for startup ideas, please put them in the reply section of this blog, and I’ll add them manually.
Also, if anyone wants to put any of these ideas into fruition, there are two hacker-style events you can go to:
3 day startup – http://www.3daystartup.com/
Hacker codejam – http://www.meetup.com/hacker-codejam (this one is my personal meetup)
And if you can, please help spread word about this in the hacker community. IE: facebook/twitter/email/blogs/whatever . I’m trying to gain some grass-roots momentum for my meetup.
