New Stuff

Based on the hefty response to my post yesterday (about a list of interesting startups profiled by bubblegen), I would also like to do something else - discuss new startups on a regular basis.

I think part of the reason there's a lack of interesting new plays is the people discussing them. For example, Arrington is a nice guy, but TechCrunch is more PR than real analysis or vision. And venture guys simply have too many vested interests these days to discuss much interesting stuff - beyond pitch advice - on their blogs.

But real analysis and vision is exactly what most startups need.

So, here's the deal - if you wanna be covered, drop me a line. Given the amount of time I have, and if you're interesting, I will do a short bit of analysis on your play. Hopefully, the rest of community will chime in as well.

Oh yeah - thanks for all the responses to yesterday's post.

Great to hear that you're goin to step in more on this mess...

You're the man!

BTW, there are some budding discussions of Bubblegen over at (google "bubblegeneration").

I also started a Bgen facebook group [even though you're right about it being evil, I thought it would be simultaneously interesting and deeply ironic].

if conflicts are getting in the way of interesting stuff on my blog umair then i am going to stop blogging.

no point in being a brochure
