This speaks to a broader issue though. When tongue-in-cheek lists such as this are created, it’s a sign that something is becoming cliche’, overdone, or is no longer original.
There are a ton of startups using “Web 2.0 technogies” to make sites that generally are aimed at the same sophisticated web audience.
To be fair, some of them are using these technologies and ideas and targeting different audiences, but if you’re a startup at this point, it’s no longer enough to just be using AJAX, tags, and RSS feeds.
What does it take now for a startup to stand out? To build an audience? There is a glut of “cool” sites to use now to manage your online life with tags and feeds, so what does a site need to keep our attention and become a success?
