User driven startups community

Startups is everywhere. YouTube, MySpace, Skype and a lot of other very famous names. The number of new startups increase quickly, but only 1 of maybe hundreds or even thousands will be on top. But which of them ? Nobody knows. Friendly speaking I'm still don't understand why MySpace is so popular. One thing which I get form MySpace on regular basis is a spam - friend requests. Something like "Take a look at my nude pics at this site. MySpace don't allow to post it here." Damn !

Closer to name of post :) I've found this site quite interesting - http://www.killerstartups.com

KillerStartups.com is a user driven internet startups community. Entrepreneurs, investors, and bloggers are staying informed on up-and-coming internet startups using our blog platform, where internet entrepreneurs submit their startup to see what others think about it.

Nice idea.

I have some startup ideas but no prototype yet. Even I'll have a prototype, to find a venture capitalist or some kind of investor can be impossible at the place where i leave - Sumy, Ukraine. So, everything I can do for now is to read what other people are doing.

BTW, what about startups in Java world ? I mean something done in Java ? Only PHP+MySQL ? :) Hmm.. wait a minute... JSESSIONID cookie at FeedBurner. Maybe I'm wrong but JSESSIONID is part of servlet spec and web applications should not mess with it. Do you know any others ?

There are tons of Java based startups. But a technology rarely drives a business model. Java is an expensive technology compared to PHP or RoR. Still, there are some startups that trust on Java because is solid as a rock and guarantees scalability if the business skyrockets.
