I would imagine whatever company makes Nerf guns would also be pretty big

Ruby on Rails is a front end technology? Well that's a new one to me.

They missed Selenium.
MySQL is not stable enough.  PostgreSQL is better.  Though MSSQL is really better if you want scalability.

Javascript isn't surprising if you know anything about modern web infrastructure at all. Most startups are offering some sort of web-based application. If you are doing anything on the web these days you are using some Javascript at some stage along the way. Node.js, Angular, D3, something...

Na, this is all too mainstream now, they've rewritten everything with things you've never heard of.

Seriously though, too many startups are bleeding edge too look cool. We're talking the bleeding edge that doesn't work right yet because no one has tested it.

It's come a hell of a long way from the days when the "coolest" thing it could do was change the status bar text when you moused over a link.

/ or recursively open infinite browser windows and crash the machine because somebody didn't double-check check their for statement

When I read the title, I was expecting Hadoop and C# to make an appearance. Guess I'm out of the loop.

With the technologies mentioned, it seems that 'startup' is synonymous with 'launching a web site.'

Definitely. I'm by no means an expert as I'm a geneticist who happens to have begun working with web-based technologies more and more over the last two years or so. My javascript skills are fairly limited but enough that I have started playing with Node.js and DataTables.js over the last little while for interfacing with big datasets on the backend and doing some presentation and interactive data exploration stuff.

I'm also involved with a startup and it would depend on who you talk to as to what technologies we use. For the main application it is all Java, Javascript, MySQL, etc. Pretty standard technology stacks and some cool javascript thrown in for visualization. But on the more research end of things where I am it is primarily Python, MongoDB, and a mix of assorted things I play with in my spare time.

COBOL and ForTran for the win!

/Maybe some APL?  ADA?  Flow-Matic?

Red Bull gives you wiiiiiiings.....

I'm old-school. My startup runs on black coffee and warm whiskey.

Those are for when you decide its time to make money.
