Tis the season for Best Of and Top Ten lists

It’s that time of year when everyone brings out their Best Of 2005 and Top Ten lists. I wrote a post this time last year entitled Best Web 2.0 Companies of 2004. It didn’t get much of a response, because it was well before the Web 2.0 hype kicked in. Over the past couple of weeks Mike Arrington from TechCrunch and I have been compiling a follow-up to my inaugural Web 2.0 Best Of, which we plan to publish this week. In the meantime it looks like Dion Hinchcliffe has beaten us to the punch and released his own Best Of list. Fair play, the Web 2.0 blogging market is no longer as empty as it was last year when I posted my 2004 list 🙂 So go read Dion’s list, but also remember to check out good old Read/WriteWeb and TechCrunch this week for our take on the year past. I’ll also have a Top Ten list coming out on my ZDNet blog and perhaps a 2006 predictions post. I’m eagerly awaiting John Battelle’s predictions for 2006. I recall printing them out last year, they were that good.

Oh and last year I chose Google as Best Web 2.0 Bigco of 2004, Ludicorp as Best Smallco, Feedburner as Most Promising. Things have changed a lot this year, since Web 2.0 has hit the big time (and my blog with it). There’s a lot more competition, which makes for an interesting selection process. Stay tuned 🙂 Tis the season…
