Essential Tools for Starting Up Your Side Business

Here is a decent article about “startup” business tools. I didn’t find that much new material, but the following were interesting:

  • MyCorp: A non-profit that sets up LLCs
  • ScanSnap: An efficient paper-to-pdf scanner
  • Adobe Acrobat: Make it easy for non-Windows people and fax less
  • Basecamp: A simple project management tool. I’ve used it before, it is simple as it could be but no simpler and the UI is pleasant. It is surprisingly nice to use.
