Hi Jeff,
you might be interested in my site, http://www.giftornot.com. I haven't heard the term minipreneur before but it pretty much covers it. The idea is that the site will suggest gifts to you from amazon based on ratings that it accumulates in its database. It also remembers individuals' ratings and tries to match people up if their ratings are similar.

Hi Jeff,

Neat article and like the term "minipreneur" I think what we've done with your ECS technologies fits the description, but we have more of philantrhopic twist, so i wonder if there is a term like "minipreneurapist" :).

We provide nonprofit organizations access to the Associates program through our application that generates money from their constituents online purchases at Amazon. We have developed some other tools to go along with the store interface and will be adding more this year, but our clients really like being able to feature products specific to their cause on their home page.

example: http://www.givezilla.com/imaginepeace

we were featured on the aws blog about a year ago, but this concept of the "minipreur" is certainly an interesting topic and hits home with us.

hope all is well and keep up the good work!
