Parent Hacks admin: Stikkit, Web 2.0, and a possible meetup

StikkitPosting has been light around here, even with all the wonderful hacks I’ve got sitting in my queue. The reason: I’ve been living the supercharged, caffeinated life of a member of a Web 2.0 startup.

As some of you already know, my husband, Rael, left his job at O’Reilly Media to start his own company, Values of n. The culture of an Internet startup is the stuff of lore, but I’m now on the inside (writing press kits, documentation, application text, Web site copy, etc., etc.) and am floored by what I see. Rael’s assembled an incredible team of good, smart people, and the energy there fairly crackles. Wow.

Next week, Values of n will beta launch its first product at the Web 2.0 Conference in San Francisco: Stikkit, “little yellow notes that think.” I’ll tell you all about Stikkit post-launch (it’s a Parenthacker’s dream), but I wanted to give you a heads-up in case any of you will be at the conference. I’ll be there Monday and Tuesday and would love to say hi.

    Best of luck to you and Rael, Asha! My hubby’s starting up a little thing of his own too so I can relate to the startup life!

    I’m looking forward to the Stikkit release. It sounds promising from what I’ve seen so far. I’m hopeful Stikkit does what I think it does =).
