Hot or Not?
So I'm reading an article from BoingBoing on Facebook applications. It listed a site that I was familiar with several years ago started by a couple of guys in their living room (and may have had more revenue than the well-funded startup that I worked for). I've not kept up with them, but they're an example of how difficult it is to create a site that, while popular and maintaining high levels of traffic, actually generates revenue.
Then there's those wacky Japanese games shows (from Jame's blog). If you don't speak Japanese let me translate for you: "Crazy dudes get pawned"
