I know what your thinking....what the heck does Bizooki on Ideablob all mean? Cool stuff I assure you. It is a call for help from a great local entrepreneur - Andy Tabar. Andy recently launched a cool tech company called Bizooki ( and was looking for a fun way to raise some coin for his new venture. Ideablob ( is a listing of cool ideas and tries to connect the idea to good advice.

Every month Ideablob gives out $10,000 to the next great idea. (Think of American Idol but for start-ups.) Bizooki is currently in second place this month to get the money. It would be awesome to have a local tech start-up get some national recognition. Please VOTE FOR BIZOOKI. Here's how:

Here's how:

1. Go to and click "vote".

2. Or go to - we are featured on the front page! ("Expand my global tech company")

3. If you feel really nice, tell friend(s) to do the same.

Let's rally around a really cool Cleveland tech company.

Free money for geeks

Where's the money coming from?  Patent attorneys?  Sounds like a fun idea engine to me, but I smell a rat somewhere. No such thing as free is encouraging to see that twenty year olds are generating technology solutions.  Advanta is a credit card company--
If Winner is an Advanta credit card holder at time of entry and Winner’s Advanta credit card account is in good standing at time of Winner selection, Winner will receive one million (1,000,000) Advanta rewards points in addition to the Grand Prize. Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”): $10,000. At Winner’s discretion, in lieu of the Advanta rewards points the cash alternative of $10,000 may be selected. Residents of Arizona, Maryland, New Jersey, North Dakota, Tennessee and Vermont are not eligible to receive this prize, and no prize will be substituted in lieu thereof. Rewards points are subject to the terms and conditions of the Advanta Business Rewards Program Rules.

Go Andy--I hope you have an Advanta credit card.

Now, if our twenty-somethings somehow manage to not drive cars, to not smoke cigarettes, to not procreate, and only eat locally grown produce and use public transportation, we are saved!
