San Diego Startups — OpenCandy
(Second in a series introducing San Diego high tech Startups.)
UPDATE: OpenCandy has changed their name to SweetLabs.
OpenCandy [one of two products offered by SweetLabs] inserts recommendations for other software into software installation routines. This isn't just an ad network for software developers, but a community generated recommendation engine. Run by Chester Ng and Darrius Thompson, OpenCandy is backed by Google, among others, including local investor Jordan Greenhall.
Pokki is a developer platform to build desktop web apps.
