Good news travels

We got a good mention in TechCrunch a week ago. It is a nice overview of our site.

A few thoughts:

1. Mike has a rabid following. We had a flood of visits for 2-3 days after the post.

2. They came, they saw, they read... These are not casual "1-page-and-I'm-out" visitors. They really read. And came back. And read more.

3. It isn't a shy crowd. Want an honest critique? Look online. It may be helpful (or not), it may be mean (or not), but it will definitely be real! (all comments appreciated, not all implemented.)

On this note - my next start-up idea is a site to harness all of this criticism power. It is a site where people post pictures of themselves and then the readers would comment. Sort of like an Internet version of "What Not to Wear," except that instead of Stacy and Clinton bashing your style (or lack there of), it is the rest of us. A "Hot or Not" for clothes. As the consulting crowd would say, "UGSC" - User-Generated Style Content. Highly entertaining.
