These are interesting times. 4 years ago I came up with The Aquarium, a FREE ASP blog that I compared to a wall where visitors could come and post messages. I'm proud to see Facebook using a similar concept.
I had thought of creating a full-scale business where users would not need to install The Aquarium; they could just go to the main site and sign up for their own. I passed; I just don't have the business training, and the Google Ads didn't add up to cover the hosting. I didn't feel confident that it ever would.
So, I'm looking for an Angel, but not to invest. I’m looking for a business partner that can help determine what fits the market; what needs to change; what will attract visitors and make money.
What works and what hasn’t: I’ve received lots of fan mail for my work. An interactive Flash movie at: Blue Puff Software has received good reviews. The 3-D Flash test at: Benjamin Lindelof's Graphics & Programming Portfolio was popular.
Misses include my attempt to commercialize my work, such as: Blue Puff Network - Work Online Anywhere which generated some leads but no new projects. I ended up moving everything to Tripod to avoid paying a webhost.

Currently I’m making money programming 9-5, but I’m an entrepreneur at heart.
