This is the subhead for the blog post

OK, I know it has been several months since my last post, and I know I promised something amazing in this post, but . . . it’s not ready yet . . . so you’ll have to content yourself with this (admittedly lame) post.

I’ve realized lately that I have way too many friends founding/funding/advising start-ups, and I figure it’s time to use the massive reach of this blog to promote these cool companies. So, without further ado, a few Web sites to check out (in no particular order):

www.justia.com (SEO for law firms)
www.sokel.net (Web analytics and outsourcing)
www.nabble.com (free forums)
www.tolestake.com (Joel’s musings on life at a start-up)
www.hattricktech.com (NYC software development)
www.collarity.com (collaborative filtering search engine?)
www.thintail.com (comparison shopping)
www.singlefeed.com (one product feed to multiple comparison shopping sites)
www.helmetcity.com (motorcycle helmets online)
www.marinsoftware.com (stealth mode!)
www.logicalads.com (online lead-gen platform?)
www.tixnix.com (fight traffic tickets online)
www.payscale.com (online salary information)

Like some of these? Hate others? Feel free to add a comment about a particular site you feel passionate about – I’ll make sure to pass it on to the owner!

OK, I know that someone is going to write in and complain that I missed your site. If so, I promise to include it in the next post. Of course, there’s no guarantee that the next post will happen in the next three months . . .

PS, gold star for anyone who figures out the reference in the blog title.
