RescueTime wins Best in ShowPosted: April 24, 2008
We presented RescueTime at the nPost Startup Event on Tuesday.
For those who don’t know, nPost is many things to many people. First and foremost, they are a job board for startup jobs, but founder Nathan Kaiser carries his passion for startups into lots of other directions, including interviewing hundreds of startup founders (no, we haven’t been interviewed and yes, we are insulted). NPost also puts on amazing startup events in Seattle like the one on Tuesday. If you’re in Seattle, there is literally no networking event that touches an nPost event.
Hundreds of people turned out to the Columbia City Theatre, with people mixing, drinking, and wandering around to visit the assorted startups who’d been invited to present their product at tables around the room.
At the end of the evening, the “Best in Show” was scientifically selected by applause. It was a tight race, but RescueTime won the day! We also won 6 months free dedicated hosting with WowRack, which will come in very handy for us (we’re STILL growing about 7% per week and it’s a struggle to keep up!).
In other news, we’re still getting great blog posts and tweets about RescueTime coming across our desks (well, our RSS readers and Twitter Track) every single day. I wish we could thanks everyone who says such great stuff. But I have to give a special shout out to Judy for her post titled “RescueTime really Does Rescue My Time“, which we (strangely) share with Flight of the Conchords (we’re big fans!).
