  2. Perhaps this is a lesson to investors. Despite something being “hot” right now most of these companies will be forgotten by next year so unless the company is brining in boatloads of money.
    I would Replace digg w/ reddi, it carries a more transparent ranking system. All in all, its a great list. My favorites are Facebook and WordPress.
