Every quarter we will be compiling a list of new web properties that are in private beta or "coming soon" stage. We hope to give them a bit of exposure and help with early customer sign up.
The other goal is to encourage them to come out to the public and start to get feedback from the user community. We are rooting for you, so launch that leaky boat or take your first steps on the water.
First let's recap the list from last quarter to see what progress has been made.

http://www.careerelement.com/index/add has launched. Turns out the company is based in San Fran however.
http://exoprise.com/ still in stealth mode, though we can cut them some slack since it is not a web company. They are seeking funding for a virtualization play.
http://www.fantourage.com/ Has launched. Easy signup go check it out.
https://www.mercavo.com/ still in private beta
http://openmile.com/ Launched, although not a consumer site of interest to you and me, they have both logistics domain experience and web backgrounds. We wish Evan and company good luck.
http://socialgrow.com/ they have launched. check it out and give them feedback on usability etc...
http://www.talentreef.com/ not launched yet. They do have a survey and form for prospective customers to sign up for a consultation. No web app at this point.
http://www.yana.com/ Launched. It is a community to help people live happier and healthier lives. Join and set some goals and let the community encourage you to fulfill them.
http://www.zaang.com/ Launched. It is a web site where people can have conversations on a specific topic with people who are like them. Check it out, you can search for a topic of interest. As always with user generated content, there is not alot a first but it grows over time. Also Zaang is hinting that this is just the beginning and their "really big" idea is coming this quarter. Stay tuned.
So there you have it. Half have launched and it is a varied and interesting group. Please take some time and give them a little user love.
Now we come to the new list of sites to watch in the coming months. Give them some sign-up love if you are interested and encourage them to take the plunge into the light of day.
