Docstoc goes live, takes temperature of business world

Document sharing site Docstoc goes live... no invitation code needed anymore.

It's fun while it lasts.

The document sharing site Docstoc (think YouTube for contracts) is now in public beta. We've covered it before, as well as Scribd and other competitors.

I like the service's free business documents and rating system, but the most entertaining features are the leaderboards of most popular documents. Right now, the top downloads page includes business plan frameworks, a list of venture capitalists, and a nondisclosure agreement template. I'm going to watch for the top documents to change to include things like bankruptcy forms and checklists for ejecting board members. That will be our indication that the startup bubble is bursting (again). Please head for the exits in a calm and orderly manner.
