I gave up on my homegrown url-shortening exercise, squrl.us, about a year and a half ago – it started as an experiment in MVC, which I tried to port to server side js, but lack of time and interest got the better of it. So I shut it down.

So TechCrunch has the story of bit.ly raising $2 milionl in funding for a valuation of $8 million (as in 800,000,000 pennies). Considering the breadth of bit.ly’s offering (or lack thereof), that is just insane.
If any VC or angel investor is out there desperate to throw money at Web2.0 ideas, I’ll resurrect squrl.us for, let’s say, $500,000 (or 50,000,000 pennies)…

Insane. Any one little gust of wind and they'd all be candidates for the Darwin Awards.
