Well this is kind of sad. Sanaz Ahari announced on the Start.com blog today that in one week (May 22, 2007), start.com will redirect to live.com, ending a most unique and fun project.
“This is a bittersweet moment as I reflect on what start.com accomplished from it’s inception in February 2005, helping pioneer ajax homepages and gadgets on the web. We accomplished great things both in terms of technology as well as being an agile small team and connecting with our customers. A successful incubation project that evolved to live.com. Unfortunately it is now time for us to retire start.com as our incubation ground for live.com. Effective next Tuesday, 5/22/07, start.com will redirect to live.com. “
If you are still using start.com, head over to the blog post and get some instructions for what do do next.
