The guys behind Judy’s Book — Andy Sack and Chris DeVore — have a pretty good track record. Andy co-founded Abuzz, which was sold to NYTimes Digital, and he was also a Softbank entrepreneur-in-residence. Chris was a partner in Adjacency, a Web consulting and design shop acquired by Sapient.
My gripe as a consumer? Judy’s Book started gathering members and recommendations in Seattle — too far North. And Insider Pages started up in Los Angeles — too far South. Thankfully, there’s Berkeley Parents Network — though it could be organized a whole lot better. Looking forward to seeing how these community/social networking/local search plays do as they gather more members.
