Here’s a great piece of PR from SimpleSpark, a Web 2.0 applications directory site which they call “the place to find and share a new world of web applications.” As of this instant, SimpleSpark is tracking 5,108 apps. They made a video that shows in 333 seconds the logos of the first 5,000 applications they are tracking.
(In fact, in the Captain Anal department, I think it’s 5,001 if you include SimpleSpark itself.)
Think of all the venture capital that went into funding all these companies. Happily, most aren’t capital intensive, but in any case — it’s a lot of companies. Browse the catalog a bit if you’re not convinced. Bubbly anyone?
