I interviewed hundreds and hired some in last years. But the company burned out of money and 90% people gone. Although I have been trying to startup something for long time, the reality happened on yourself will give you the deepest impression and turbulence. "Get a job and keep it" will not be as simple as someone hoped. There are too many things non-controllable working for others. In such economic situation, the recruiting agent told me that if there are 4 persons applying for one position before, now it is 100.
Your mentioned site is a good example. Since I worked with some native guys on Kiosks, I suggested to do something similar, back in 1998. However, it will be one style of business because of the advantage of software products, and we will keep trying on that.
Please email me with your phone number if you like. Thanks.
