Pre-Registration Opens at Grocio.com

September 10, 2008

For those of you who haven’t heard, I launched a little startup today called “Grocio” (pronounced Grow-See-Oh). Registration is free!

We’re a comparison shopping engine for groceries. Starting with your zip code and shopping list, we’ll identify the least expensive local grocer. At the same time we MATCH coupons to the EXACT items you’re shopping for. So two things are happening here:

  • You’re saving a TON of money at the checkout counter by picking the right grocer.
  • You’re adding to the savings with coupons you didn’t spend an hour trying to find in the newspaper.

We’re in a local business plan competition (kind of like TechCrunch50) and could use all the registrants possible. If you like the concept, drop in and give us a vote of confidence by registering please.

List of Web 2.0 Startups & Their Servers of Choice

July 26, 2008

Saw a question  on LinkedIn a couple of days ago asking what server a web startup should saddle up with. The answers, of course, were “it depends”. Lots of things help determine “which server”. There are lots of choices to make. What’s interesting is the decision other startups have settled on. Anticipate some people are going to ask, “How’d you assemble this list?” I’ll preempt that by directing you to NetCraft.

[EDIT: Have begun adding a few new sites here and there. Check back semi-sort-of, but-not-too often.]

For instance (and this is by no means comprehensive. So… feel free to comment with your site of choice to help round out the list):
