Re: 6 Hour Startup,


Anyone know anything more about these guys?

I’d pay to see this run over a weekend here in NY.

Dell "IdeaStorm" style site - For the Unfortunate 5 Million (!Fortune 500)

Posted: 08 May[masked]:04 PM CDT small community here in Seattle of tech geeks are working hard to plan their upcoming conference. They are called the "Six Hour Startup" -- the basic premise is - they want to create a startup -- you guessed it -- IN SIX HOURS.

The Six Hour Startup (or SHS) is a tight knit groups of technology geeks, design dudes, marketing folks that get together once a month (on a Saturday) and launch a new startup!

They are currently trying out IdeaScale -- Check out some ideas that people have proposed:


This example reflects crowd-sourced feedback in a very distinct way -- Typically most users would have done a survey -- but the issue here, when you run a survey is that users cannot really "collaborate" -- in the Web 2.0 world, what is life without collaboration?!

If you are in the Seattle area, you should checkout their site : and more importantly, if you are a tech geek or thinking of starting a company, you should check out their conference :

If you want to setup an IdeaScale for your blog, company or cause -- Fire up an account @ IdeaScale and get rolling!


BTW - If you are wondering what the title means ("Unfortunate 5 Million") -- We all know and talk about the Fortune 500 - Well, we think there are a lot of tools and services that others need, but don't have the kind of cash to blow - I call them the Unfortunate 5 Million. I am not sure who coined that term, but I've decided to use it.
