Mr Cranky’s Dumb Startup Ideas

Let’s talk dumb startup ideas…. I’ve seen search engines for party’s, search engines for recipes, just plain old search engines that will compete directly against Google. I’m seeing some pretty, inane, world-yawning dumb startup ideas. Thank goodness the election is over because if I had to see 1 more voting engagement political action application I was going to move to Texas in time for them to secede from the union.

So why do I let everyone else have the fun creating and presenting dreck with a straight face. I can do dreck and I’ll prove it.
