  1. Facebook definitely deserves the overall award, their figures speak for themselves….their servers are slow though, and updates are becoming difficult at times….short attention spans start wandering quickly….employers are also increasingly banning facebook from work pc’s, and during working hours.

    Then Stumbleupon is a personal favourite, definitely the way to discover obscure sites about your areas of interest, finding stuff you’d never find on organic text driven search engine results.

  2. I can give or take the other winners, but congrats to Meebo. A great chat program made by folks who honestly care about their users and want them to have a great experience. Both the iPhone/iPod Touch adaptations and the web-based version are a joy to use and include all the chat programs I care about being on.

    (Note to Trillian: You could learn a thing or two from them. Drop ICQ and support GoogleTalk!)

  3. Heh! Digg and best user-generated content? Just goes to show voting is not always be the best process for selecting award winners. The hordes on Digg could swing any vote to make Digg the winner in any category!

    IMO, blogging sites like should be voted the winner for best user-generated content. They encourage users to publish much better information than Digg comments.

  4. 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.
