ehh? says:

i can tell this is just a social events between you “bloggers” and the big companies. make them happy, so they talk to you first. disappointed.

JeffC says:

The angry and bitter crowd is out in full force this holiday season, eh? Congrats to all on the list, good luck.

Dan says:

I missed the memo that you needed to have a web2.0 name with missing vowels to be nominated. Keep this list, it will be good for a laugh in five years.

Oops, I meant, ” I missd the meme that YouNeeded 2have a web2.0 namr wit missing vowls 2BeNom. ListKepr laughr in 5yeerz.”

joe, did your company make the cut?

Richthofen says:

If you would boycott this by not giving empty argument comments, now that would be fresh sight.

(I apologize for this empty argument comment… NOT)

Richthofen says:

When you make an accusation, you have to prove it (in this case argue). If you don’t argue, you’re just whining, making you not much different than a WoW/CS whining kiddie.

As I don’t perceive the readers of TC as those (WoW/CS kiddies), I would like to hear some straight, objective and clear arguments as to why this is a fraud, sham, joke, etc. Maybe that way the guys at TC will also take your comments more seriously.

This is an event brought by TC. It didn’t go well in some accounts, next year it will surely improve with the possible mistakes that were made. Those who haven’t organized any kind of event (and I’m not talking about school plays or parties) are usually those who don’t value the effort of the organizers (not that I’m accusing you of anything).

Don MacAskill says:

I’ve gotten a few emails from potential voters that the voting page locks up and crashes IE. Normally I’d ignore one, but I’ve gotten more than one.

Alas, I don’t have IE on this machine, so I can’t check myself. Anyone else able to vote in IE?

Whinning kiddie here,thank you.

Tiago Macedo says:

It works fine on IE6. I don’t have IE7 though.

Amit says:

Voting seems to be broken – Tried on FF, and IE 6. FF shows a page with the AJAX response, and IE6 wants to save some file.

Fix it! :)

edith says:

since when was the Wii released in 2007???
Kind of puts a damper on the whole thing for me. Very strange list in some of these categories.

Fred Oliveira says:

Amit: you need to have Javascript turned on :)

droper says:

You can just erase cookies and vote multiple times. How can someone fairly win this contest? Shouldn’t it be locked down by IP address?

Also, it seems that it is “the company with the most users” will win. Not, who is most likely to make money and actually succeed.

Staten Island NY Real Estate says:

To droper: you could also outsource the voting/clicking to some company in Bangalore…

Fat Man says:

is it too late for a site to be nominated?

Alexis says:

Yes it will be interesting to see what happens to these companies five years from now.

Lynne says:

djkslkufwoi says: is the best.

Staten Island Painters says:
