Real World Software Development has posted an enormous list of Web 2.0 sites, the Best of the Best Web 2.0 sites. All of these site are (of course) checked by the Web 2.0 validator. Which is one step above (or below?) the Web 2.0 Bullshit Generator.
The list is extensive, but surprisingly there’s no mention of LibraryThing, Shelfari (which we wrote about recently, Our new (Beta) bookshelf on Shelfari), and Whatsonmybookshelf. Also missing is BlueDot (social bookmarking), JumpCut (video editing), and Splice (audio editing). Still there must be over 100 sites here many that I’ve never come across.
As someone who observed the first Internet bubble up-close in San Francisco, I’m finding the proliferation of Web 2.0 sites just as remarkable. Yesterday Business Week ran an article, Bubble 2.0? in it a longtime venture investor, Todd Dagres suggest a 1% success rate, “For every one that works, another 100 will fail.” I guess we’ll find out soon enough if he’s right.
