What's The Optimal Number Of Co-Founders For A Startup?

2.09!

I’ve given the topic of how many founders are needed for startups some
thought. My personal opinion is at least two, but no more than three.
Hence, the “2.09” number in the title of this article works (and
there’s some basis for this, which I’ll explain later).

Gmail. Ready to pay?



Rumour?


Now that Google's Gmail is open for everyone worldwide, free of charge,
Google's Sergey Brin
has been
rumored to have said
that they will start selling upgraded packages
for additional data storage capacities. They have found out that there are many
users that have extraordinary storage needs for online email, and will be
sorting out different packages that will be introduced later this year. The
charges could be inline with Google's
Picasa
online photo storage service that comes with 250MB of free storage but charges
yearly fees of US$25 for 6.25GB up to $500 for 250GB of storage.

More than a social cup of coffee

So most of you have probably frequented a Starbucks. A $4 coffee just seems quite excessive, right? Well if you were to open the menu at Terra Bite you would see that there are no prices in the menu. Ervin Peretz and Susie Allsup hatched the idea of a "free coffee shop" whilst intoxicated in Vietnam. Basically you are obligated to give a donation for the coffee and according to Peretz, a 37 year old Google programmer, most visitors drop around $3 in the anonymous drop box.

The coffee shop works on the concept of social monitoring. The influence of others around you will obligate you to donate. Well it seems to work. One individual was determined to enjoy a cup for free but felt so bad he drove back and paid double! The founders believe it works in a area such as Kirkland, WA as there is a strong social standing. Somewhere like Seattle might see a very different result.

Hopefully people see that such a venture is sincere and not just a gimmick.

Crazy man drops $230k on Flight Simulator

It's got 13 quad-core machines hooked up to his 42-inch Philips Ambilight TV, all running a rig sitting on top of a crazy hydraulic setup that moves with the action. Seriously, $230,000 is more than some flying lessons would cost? Seems to me if you have that much cash to toss around and you really want to fly, you can fly.

Have astronauts ever had sex in space?

If astronauts have had space sex, it would have been very difficult. First off, there isn't much privacy up there. A regular shuttle is about as big as a 737, and the two main areas—the crew cabin and middeck—are each the size of a small office. The bathroom is little more than a seat with a curtain, and there aren't any closed rooms..

How Not to Bring a Child Into the World


When Nyree Thompson, who is nine months pregnant, felt pains in her belly, she assumed they were gas pains. Grinding away at the penny slots at an Atlantic City casino, she thought nothing of it. Then, when her water broke, she thought maybe she should summon help, which she did. Soon there after, a small baby boy was born right on the casino floor. One casino exec, who probably wishes he could take it back, commented ‘Well, we’ve had lots of people die here, but never anyone born here’. Nice.

An open letter to Kevin Rose...

Dear Kevin

I really dig digg I have been a Digg user for little over a year and find myself opening up Digg.com at least 5 times a day. I have so many different browsing pattern depending on my particular preference at the time but lately I find that I can’t really can’t use it properly anymore. Who has the time to wade through 1000 random 1 digg entries that bloggers can’t even get their mothers to dig on their behalf. On behalf of your community I ask (actually beg) for a filter on upcoming diggs by the minimum number of diggs at my choosing. When I have time I’ll wade through the 1 digg wonders but please give me the tools to know what 2, 3 or 5 of my fellow diggers have found interesting lately. The gap between the front page and the interesting stuff is widening give us some control back

Regards ………..
