This guy just won a "mint"

Aaron Patzer, CEO of Mint Software

The winner of TechCrunch 40 is: Mint.com.

Here’s the CEO, Aaron Patzer. He just won $50,000. His site is being hit so hard it’s down. He gave us a demo yesterday morning. We’ll try to get that up tomorrow.

What’s interesting is that two days ago I asked who would win and within minutes one commenter here said he thought Mint would. More proof that my readers know more than I do?

Here’s the TechCrunch coverage of the contest
. Mint is also at the top of TechMeme right now.
