SXSW: Web applications as side projects

There's been a lot of emphasis on side projects this week. Instead of using VC money and renting offices, buying furniture, hiring lots of staff and supplying free drinks, just start with a small web app and release it slowly, and see what happens.

I've had a website idea brewing for a while, and done some experiments, so I'm more positive about pressing on with it. I got a chance to speak to Robert Scoble today, and he would find the thing useful (if I wrote it), which is further encouragement to spend my spare time hunched over a keyboard.
