Ideas for Startups

Just got done reading an article over Paul Graham’s site. Everytime I leave there, I get a little pick me up on the work that I am trying to do. DONT WORK FOR THE MAN! Gotta stick to that….. Must stick to it…..
Must form start-up company…… Must be bought so I can make more start-up companies.

Anyways here is the link to the article. ๐Ÿ™‚

Ideas for Startups

How do you get good ideas for startups? That’s probably the number one question people ask me.

I’d like to reply with another question: why do people think it’s hard to come up with ideas for startups?

That might seem a stupid thing to ask. Why do they think it’s hard? If people can’t do it, then it is hard, at least for them. Right?

  1. Funny that when I finally hear from you, it’s on a site that I guest author. (Occasionally). As far as startups go, or what value you can bring to the universe with your great code, check out folks like 37signals.com . I think they’ve got their finger on something.

    If you want to stay free and startuppy, you should stay in “quick” structures, like Ruby on Rails, and AJAX. There’s lots of stuff to be done there.

    If you fall into the “rather be rich” category, I think the meat is in XML (maybe XML/SOAP) and stuff like J2EE and things that plug nicely into fat middleware (like WebLogic, JBOSS, WebSphere).

    But then again, I’m only one voice. I’m speaking from the guts of a 400+ person company with a lot of products that work very well, but are written on older frameworks, and are thusly less portable and flexible. I’ve seen the future and it is flex.

    Drop me a line sometime. I’d love to hear what you’re working on.
