Which one will be the next YouTube?
CNN Business 2.0 Magazine has established its annual list of the top 25 start-ups amond which you can pick your winners for 2007. Last year, they had identified Digg, Trulia, Technorati, JotSpot, Writely, Youtube. The last 3 have been snapped by Google as you well know. Just go through the list..
Here is my winner in each category :
Social media : Meebo Lets users manage multiple instant-messaging services from one site. Meebo’s killer app is a widget that places an IM window on your blog or webpage.
Video : Eyeka (granted, i am biased) but i like the unique distribution business model.
Mobile : Fon - I just love the idea of doing it to the big guys. The service is about tieing together the home broadband connections already in place.
Advertising, : Spotrunner : it’s about disrupting the creative process. The ads will never win a Lion in Cannes, but they can’t be worse than some of these cardealerships ads you see in the US.
Entreprise : Janrain - seems really useful for users
