Very StumbleUpon-like. It might be better to open these startup pages in a new tab so that it's easy to return to discover another one. There's also the iframe approach but that can be annoying. Thoughts, @ryanheybourn?

@rrhoover @ryanheybourn Instead of opening in a new tab. I think it'd be better if you displayed the name of the startup and a short description, with a link to it - otherwise it might be a bit annoying to get it opened in a new tab if you aren't interested in the startup.

@rrhoover totally! I quickly hacked this together last night and was sure I'd forgotten to add some things. I'll do that as soon as I get on my laptop. Appreciate the feedback!

Hey everyone! The hardest part of building a startup is promotion and getting your early users online. I struggled to find a good source of users from previous projects, so decided to build startupbutton.com. Startup Button provides entrepreneurs with a fun and engaging way to promote their startups to thousands of daily users. The premise is simple; one button, 20 new startups every week. Simply click go and be transported to a new and exciting startup every time. Every week, 20 new startups are reviewed and hand-picked from our submission pool by our team of curators. These are then connected to the button which once clicked, navigates to one of these startups at random. Think of it as the dynamic and useful version of The Useless Web.

This feels like the landing page for http://monkey.cool. Were you inspired by them?

@yogert96 I hacked this together last night and found Monkey's colour scheme and basic design to be fitting for what I wanted. It's obviously pretty similar, but I've tried to remove whatever association I can. I don't condone doing it however, so I'll ship a new design as soon as I can.
