.Netas an Awesome Startup Platform Rudy Lacovara
A History of Startup Platforms 1998 - Web 1.0 A large percentage of startups are built on ASP  2008 – Web 2.0 Most startups are built on Ruby/Rails or PHP. ASP.Net is ignored as a startup platform.
What is a Startup? “A regular company executes on a known business model.  A startup is a company searching for their business model.” - Unknown (but I’m sure I stole it from someone) “Are you ready to jump off a tall building and build your parachute on the way down? Welcome to Startup Lounge” 		- Startup Lounge Podcast
What I need  in a Startup Architecture Speed If I’m heading toward the ground I want to build that parachute as fast as possible. Flexibility I assume that I’m going to make mistakes.  Making big changes must be fast and easy.
