As I go throughout my normal day/routine, I am constantly running into awesome startups and services. As I furiously catalog/favorite/bookmark these items I realize that there are some that really stand apart as beyond cool or useful. I’m toying with starting a new weekly/bi-weekly series that combines these amazing startups into a quick list. The thing is, they are a bit random… but they need to be shared with the world. At the same time, they might not (yet) fit into one of our epic top 100 lists so instead of letting them collect dust in my Evernote account I decided I might as well just share them. So, that’s how I came up with this post (and perhaps the first of many) called 10 Random Startups You Can’t Live Without. What do you think? Do you want to see more of these?
