Secret Web 2.0 company-birther

Mercury News blog SiliconBeat found a secret dot-com incubator — secret in that coy, Googly way of promising everything and nothing. Next Internet has all the Web 2.0 trappings — pale blue color scheme, check; big sans-serif text, check; takeaway points in orange, check. And it's got big plans — maybe.

The meta-flipmeat wants to launch 15 dot-coms in the next three years. If Next Internet really plans to be "profitable and constantly growing," those five dot-coms a year can't be some re-microwaved social bookmarking sites or high-risk Webvan clones.

And they're based down in Mountain View, a two-minute drive from Google. That should make a quick afternoon move-in for freshly bought flipmeat.
