@adam Yeah! It's been live since April 2011. @Nathan I need to approve more startups more often, but I try to approve startups that seem viable. With having worked at AngelList and running StartupList for a couple years, I've seen thousands of early startups. I try to quickly review their: Current stage of development Market Location Design Team Market competition Product If they seem to be a relatively viable startup that's not going to die in a month, I'll approve it. As StartupList is a curated site, I need to be weary of approving everything, when most startups fail. It sometimes feels like I'm an investor, not with money, but with visibility. Thanks for the question! Nick

@TheNickFrost and I geeked out about this topic at the PandoMonthly event earlier this week. I respect the amount of effort and investment he puts into his curated list.
