Seattle Web 2.0 Startup Index (July 2007 edition)

July 31, 2007

Another month is complete and we have the new Seattle Startup Index (SSI), a list of Seattle Web 2.0 startups ordered by their Alexa Ranking.

    The list has reached a new record with 157 companies, 6 more than last month and I'm sure we are missing a few companies. If you know any send it to me (it has to be a Web 2.0 startup from Seattle). But that is not the only record being broken this time, Versionate has moved 53 positions (!!!) on the rank to number 66, the biggest move since I started the SSI. 

    The other notable mentions in growth are Down2night moving 19 spots to number 55, Wishpot moving 14 positions to rank number 47 and Ripl moving 13 positions to number 89. And the newcomer of the month is They're Beautiful (by Jackson Fish Market) that debuts at number 49.

Scrapbooking With Video and Sound, Minus the Paper and Glue

By DAN MITCHELL
Published: April 6, 2006

For many scrapbookers, all that messy glue and paper is part of the fun. For others, it's just a mess

 MemoryMixer, digital scrapbooking software from Lasting Impressions for Paper Inc., not only helps keep things neat and tidy, but also lets scrapbookers add video and sound to their collections of memorabilia.

MemoryMixer ($80 at www.memorymixer.com, for PC's and Macs) can be used as a simple layout tool or for creation of a full multimedia experience. Users can scan and load high-resolution images of report cards, diplomas, children's drawings, wedding invitations and the like, which can be printed out along with photos for a traditional scrapbook. For online scrapbooks, users can add sound or video, which may play automatically or manually. There is also a feature for linking to the Internet.

For novices, MemoryMixer offers dozens of ready-made page templates to choose from. Experts can design their own. Either way, the glue and scissors can be left in the junk drawer.

MobMe - from student startup to a million dollar dream

11 Jan 2008
Posted by ashish under Indian Startups

mobmeMobMe is an interesting startup for several reasons - right from the products they offer, to partnership route this Trivandrum based startup has taken, to most importantly, the background of the company.

The company was started by 3 guys (Sony Joy, Sanjay and Kenny) when they were in 7th semester of engg. college (kenny is 2 years senior).
What’s really amazing is that they were able to successfully raise funds ($250,000 while in 7th semester & another $250,000 just after graduation) and the second time fund was raised at 10X valuation!!
