Webware 100 - 2008 winners announced

Webware 100 - 2008 WinnersYesterday, CNet announced the Webware 100 winners for the 2008 competition. These are the top Web 2.0 applications, according to the 1.9 million votes from Webware readers and Internet users.

 

Of course, the list misses some of my favorites and the term Web 2.0 is used with a great freedom, but nevertheless, the winners were selected by a large pool of people. Some of them are obvious and returning winners, such as Google, Google Maps and Amazon, but there are a few interesting new ones. I personally would prefer a list which excludes the obvious industry leaders as they do not add any value to the results, but there are a few very interesting ones.

 

From the real estate technology sphere, Zillow made the cut. Last year was clearly great for Twitter (refer to Jeff's posts for everything you ever wanted to know about Twitter) and I was glad to see blogtalkradio making it too (see Juliet using BlogTalkRadio on her AR post)

Any of your favorites on this list?

Justin - Never heard about DeviantArt before. It seems that they have 54 million user generated arts posted according to CNet. Sweet.

These are some of my favorites. I've been a great fan of LogMeIn. I didn't see LinkedIn, Plaxo or Ning, which are also on my favorites list. Ning is a great social networking site for setting up public or private social networks.

Geoff - The CNET post author is asking about Plaxo and Ning as well.

Tina - Yes, where is RB and AR?

I love Kayak. I do ALL of my airline ticket purchases on that. Never touched Expedia and Orbitz for search ever since I discovered what Kayak can do in terms of usability.

Bill - Pretty good list, I agree.  I could not find the list of nominees on their site. I wonder how many real estate related service was nominated besides Zillow
