Web 2.0 Company of the Year

Tags: off topic — Aidan @ 9:06 pm

Well, the year is nearly over. It’s time to down the rum and egg nog and tidy up our CSS. Not in that order, mind you.

The end of the year brings a time of reflection. It’s a time to ponder the good and the bad. Having said that, I am looking for reader feedback as to who should be named the “Web 2.0 Company of the Year”. I am not going to provide suggestions, as this might create a bias.

Provide a comment with the name of the company and the reason why you think it should be considered for the honour.

    I’m going to say 37signals. Their products have proved to be very useful, and very easy to use.

    If not 37s, I’d say YouTube. Can’t say how many hours I’ve spent watching random videos. That was just a good idea!

    It’s defiantly YouTube

    37signals for kick-starting Web2.0 with Ruby on Rails. Though that was last year..

    I’d also nominate YouTube, not for their videos, but for the fact that after just about two years of offering the use of their flash video player, they were bought out by Google for an INSANE (1.65 billion?) amount. No original content, arguably simple technical requirements.. but kick ass buzz, very Web2.0

    I suppose Reddit should go up for the similar reasons (bought out by Wired), but it wasn’t nearly as big of a deal.
