I know there are other places to find startups that have failed in the past...so we didn't add them to this list. The goal is for it to have more recent failures from more current makers. Hope this can help us learn from others!

@awt Looks like there are just two companies on the list so far - do you have plans to add more? Would also be nice if they were hyperlinked / included screenshots

@abadesi I saw another place with failures from years ago...I'm hoping that current makers will add some failures of their own to this list so we have more recent examples...but if the list doesn't grow very fast I'll definitely add some more!

I think you need a section where people can describe what the startup did otherwise it's just a bunch of names. It would also be cool to learn more about any traction they got, fundraising, etc...
