真的，现在创业在国外真的火到爆。facebook和twitter引导了social networking，世界现在才真的非常flat。苹果的iphone，ipad，google的android 手机平台引爆了移动互联网的时代。这些trend叠加起来产生了具体的化学反应。而这后面更有风投的推手。特别是这一年，出现了super angle，以seed funding和培育室的方式来建立start－up school，无论在风投风行的美国，还是在欧洲大陆popular的不行了。而国内李开复的innovation works其实就是类似的模式。
自己的idea需要多个individual来合作，这在以前只有internet＋email的时代根本不可能，而现在不同了。不但有teleconference，还有很多web－base的collaborative diagram tool以及风行的social networking都让专业人才在家里工作即可实现与远在各地的人员实现合作。

My business plan involves software out-souring and collaboration among designer, programmer, project manager and client. I’v been struggling to think of the way to facilitate such cooperation. But in fact, quite a few start-ups have come up with the tool to assist. They are called Collaborative Diagramming Tool.
Take a look following article from techcrunch which introduced a few tools to use. The world really is getting smaller and starting your business costs much less. No better time than right now to start your own business and realize your business dream.

Cacoo, the browser-based diagramming and design application launched in November 2009, came out of beta today. The Flash tool allows users to create, share and publish wireframes, sitemaps, network diagrams, flow charts, UMLs, etc.
What makes Cacoo stand out is that it lets multiple users in different locations create and edit designs collaboratively and in real-time. Changes to designs shared online, i.e. on a blog or wiki, are reflected in the embedded item automatically and in real-time, which means uploading them again isn’t necessary (more on Cacoo’s main features in our previous coverage).
Next to shedding the beta label, Cacoo maker Nulab has introduced a freemium model, under which the free plan will continue with some restrictions. Users paying $4.95 monthly (or $49 per year) will be able to create unlimited sheets for their designs, export them in more formats (SVG), share diagrams and folders with an unlimited number of people, and more.
