Startup Weekend Yields Desktop Yoga Site
Startup Weekend Boston, a three-day volunteer collaboration held October 19-21 and aimed at launching a new Web business from scratch, resulted in a website aimed at keeping weary knowledge workers limber at DeskHappy.com. At the site you can watch video demonstrations of easy exercises that don’t require getting up from your chair, or sign up for e-mails (sent up to five times a day) reminding you that it’s time for a stretch. The Boston Globe covers the inside story in today’s edition. Previous startup weekends in other cities gave rise to Web services such as the tag-based chat program Scrolltalk and group voting site Vosnap.
