Two lists of the best Web 2.0 applications of 2005. The lists give pretty good idea of what Web 2.0 is and what are the most prominent directions of its development.
The first list was compiled by Mark Millerton and can be found here: http://www.articledashboard.com/Article/Top-10-Innovative-Web-2-0-Applications-of-2005/10891
The second list comes courtesy of Dion Hinchcliffe and is located here: http://web2.wsj2.com/the_best_web_20_software_of_2005.htm This list breaks Web 2.0 applications in categories, and, besides naming the best, provides also several runners-up for each category. The discussion that follows this article is also quite interesting as one can find there even more interesting applications and sites.
A curious thing: it seems to me that only Digg has made it into both lists. I’ve checked Digg out as soon as it was mentioned by eHub – but I definitely cannot consume more news now, so I still didn’t try and use it. But now I think about giving it a shot – since both lists recommend it.
