Pens picked by the Editors of CodePen. MillionShort. Million Short is an experimental web search engine (really, more of a discovery engine) that allows you to REMOVE the top million (or top 100k, 10k, 1k, 100) sites from the results set.

MillionShort

We thought it might be somewhat interesting to see what we'd find if we just removed an entire slice of the web. The thinking was the same popular sites (we're not saying popular equals irrelevant) show up again and again, Million Short makes it easy to discover sites that just don't make it to the top of the search engine results for whatever reason (poor SEO, new site, small marketing budget, competitive keyword(s) etc.). Most people don't look beyond page 1 when doing a search and now they don't have to. So far, feedback has ranged from: "This sux! " to "Great supplementary search" to "I think its a great idea!..

5 Tools to Improve Your Idea Before You Write a Line of Code. In my last post on ReadWriteStart, I talked about how, in many cases, it wasn't an advantage to build your start-up in stealth mode.

5 Tools to Improve Your Idea Before You Write a Line of Code

As a continuation of that theme, I thought it would be interesting to explore five tools you can use to iterate and improve your startup idea before writing one line of code. There is nothing worse than building a tool no one is interested in, so I'd encourage you to consider these options before starting down the path of building your next startup. Specifically, these five tools can help you do three critical activities before starting to write a line of code: create a wireframe, get feedback from the target market and test value proposition through multiple landing pages. iMockups for Wireframing Concepts If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then a good mockup is worth 1,000 lines of code.

Feedback on Concept from Target Market Once you've got a concept put together, it's often valuable to get some early feedback from your target market. Conclusion. Kinected Conference.
