TechCrunch posted today on Prototype B of the CrunchPad. The concept itselft is ambitious and interesting but what I think is even more interesting is the concept of TechCrunch as an incubator (Mike talks in his post about spinning off the project if they get positive feedback and think it can fly). Why? Well why not? Mike is imerged in a very rich environment where he constantly exposed to problems and ideas. He can easily elaborate his own set, prototype them, get feedback from a couple million users, prototype them again and determine with very little money if it is a viable idea or not. He is also well connect which makes it easier for him to help build an initial founding team and get funding when the idea is worthed. For all those reasons I think that TechCrunch could become a successful incubation center. What do you think?
