maybe by posting it in their askMefi question? (not trying to be snarky, but c'mon, you lead us to the brink just to leave it at that?)

To answer your question, you should read this recent post about why its great to be a start-up now, and this essay about how to start a start up.

Most importantly, start a blog and start blogging your idea right now. getting VC may seem like the most important thing to you, but most VCs won't touch you if you don't have a proof of concept.

If you want to spend more time designing and less time coding, learn to use a framework like RubyOnRails. 37signals released the highly successful BaseCamp with just two months of coding work I recall. I developed a successful site with it in just three days which now gets 8000 pageviews a day.
