"It's rumored that a Web entrepreneur only has to walk down the street in downtown San Francisco to attract VC funding these days. That's probably an exaggeration, but even so, you can't help but admire the grit of Gliffy's co-founders, Chris Kohlhardt and Clint Dickson...They've chosen to bootstrap their San Francisco-based start-up to the point where, seven years later and with a user base of millions, they're now completing a port to HTML5 and contemplating the next phase of expansion — all without a penny of outside financing.

"Two guys with some time on their hands have created a tool that might just become a Visio-killer. Gliffy is a free diagramming tool that works entirely in your browser. Like other online applications, it has inherent advantages over traditional software. Collaboration is easier, for one....Gliffy also makes it easy to publish a diagram you create to the Web. Gliffy keeps a live JPG of each file on its servers, so if a site or blog links to that image, it will always show the most current version."
