The Startup “Hyphen” Must Die

By Startup Issues

It’s time for the entire startup world to cease spelling “startup” with a hyphen.

I realize that most dictionaries have “start-up” as the main entry. But if “vlog” and “webisode” can be added to the dictionary, I’m pretty sure the startup hyphen can be eliminated from those same reference books.

In addition to just looking cleaner without the hyphen, think of all the keystrokes we’ll save over our lifetime. By eliminating the startup hyphen, we’ll probably be able to push back our first bout with carpal tunnel syndrome a few months.
