Naming Startups and the Numberthing Trend

Over at the blog I author at BNET, called Selling to Small Business, I write about the numberthing trend.

That’s the trend toward naming startups with a number and a thing, such as 37 Signals or 43 Things.

The term was coined recently by Owen Thomas at the Business 2.0 Blog (almost a numberthing itself).

Read the whole article over at BNET. I am creating a list of startups with numberthing titles over there — leave a comment and add to the list over at BNET.
