w00t! go lads! Start Up Stories, Australia

The Age (Fairfax) has brought on board some groovy guys to spruce up their bloggy offerings:

Welcome to the world of the Australian web start-up.

Whether it’s building a media empire, pioneering the latest technologies or putting the social into software, Australia is buzzing with internet entrepreneurship.

Who’ll break the bank and who’ll go bust? Is the next Google being conceived in a garage in Burwood or is it just another bubble?

Start up stories is contributed to by Marty Wells of Tangler, Nik Cubrilovic of Omnidrive, Peter Styles of RedBubble, Ben Barren of Feedcorp and Cameron Reilly of The Podcast Network.

Contributors to this blog are unpaid and their views are entirely their own and do not reflect that of theage.com.au. No advertising arrangements have been entered into.

In an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald on Thursday I gave REDBUBBLE my vote for coolest Aussie Web 2.0 startup. Anyway, good luck to the lads.

  1. You’re welcome, poppet. And if you’re wondering what I said to the SMH it was along the lines of ‘redbubble is an online art community that shows you don’t have to have to be a messy MySpace to be edgy in the social network space’.

    I said ‘edgy’ cos it’s the IN word to use about online stuff atm. 😛

  2. Did you submit your site at blogsearch.sg?
    You can reach blogsearch by just typing blogsearch.sg in your browser window or click here
    This is a service by bizleadsnet directory of web logs.

  3. And it’s been a good experience so far; except maybe for the comments – some hostile people out there in newspaper land.

  4. Oh forgive me m’lord, of course that’s why I couldn’t vote for you. *obsequious grovellng* All Hail King Martin. 🙂

    Be glad that you ignited them on your first post. You picked a tough topic – who hasn’t been rejected after 7 interviews and gotten a little pissy? But better your readers swing in with a bit of argy bargy and liven the thread up, than a digital graveyard haunted by 3 or 4 lost souls. How are you going to top that, you Jonesy/Lawsy of the blog world? Heh.
