A directory of the best in Web 2.0 applications

Share |

There's a lot of innovation going on in the new web right now, with ground-breaking applications coming from individual developers as well as big, well-funded companies. It seems like every day, there's a new service out there giving you a new way to collaborate, create, tag or remix.

Keeping track of it all – or even knowing where to start looking for a particular kind of service – has been a daunting challenge... until now.

But that started to change late last month, when search engine optimizer SEOmoz announced the Web 2.0 Awards: their picks for the very best in the field. And while it's nice for the contenders to know who won and who placed, that's not the real value here.

The award site lists more than 300 Web 2.0 sites: applications that are helping the online world to bring people and information together in ways we couldn't have imagined just a few years ago. And site author Kat Orland conducts interviews with leading figures from each of the winning sites (21 in all).

Whether you're look for the latest in the social web, or just trying to figure out what it's all about, their site is a great place to start.
