I created a service with a FireFox plugin a couple of years ago called MyStickies with Derek Andriesian. We got going on it and did quite a bit, but then we weren’t sure how to monetize it, so we left it alone. However, it still seems to be alive and kicking. I just got an email from Suzane Smith letting me know she included it in a list of 100 Firefox tips for research. You may notice that MyStickies is number 20, and the first one listed under the “Best Addons” section.
I’d like to move it over to Google App Engine and add note sharing sometime. Again, without monetization it can be hard to justify the time.
Some interesting MyStickies statistics:
Total users signed up: 59,741
Total notes placed across the web: 321,572
Users signed up in the last 30 days: 1,101
I’m sure there’s something I could do to give these users more features and be able to support the development costs as well. I’ll have to think about it.
