What was hot on QBase last week

Collaborative open company databases are hot right now, and QBase continues to thrive. Joining The Inquisitr and Mashable in offering a Tradevibes’ branded service is ReadWriteWeb, who announced their service today, so you get the combined wisdom of three great sites, all from the one place.

If you’ve not jumped in to QBase yet, it’s a great place to discuss the latest startups, contribute links and information, and even get some traffic back.

Quant Doerr Scoring
A reader of my venture scoring blog wanted me to start a thread about Quant Doerr.

Well, its a proprietary stat regression analysis of past venture successes, and essentially I am trying to predict and score early stage venture funded companies. I have setup a virtual fund which has invested in over 10 deals since last October.

Where Locals Eat – Is it different enough?
There seems to be lots of sites for selecting a place to eat, yelp, chow hound, etc. Where Locals Eat adds the new feature of combining GPS and the new iphone to literally direct people to a restaurant in real time. Do you think this app and the tons of content on their site will keep users coming back for seconds?

Remember, if you’re a startup, and you’re not on QBase/ Tradevibes yet, you are missing out on eyeballs from The Inquisitr, Mashable and ReadWriteWeb, so get moving, and click here to sign up.
