TechCrunch’s 2008 Must Have Web 2.0 Apps


TechCrunch's Michael Arrington recently published his list of must have web 2.0 applications for 2008. This is the third year the popular tech blogger has created the annual must-have list and you'll notice that there are some repeats from years past.


WordPress, the blogging platform (and the engine behind Executive Biz) is one of five web 2.0 application that has made it on the list all three years. “It would be hard to underestimate how much WordPress makes my life easier. It is the blogging platform that runs all of the TechCrunch network sites, and has been on the list all three years,“ Arrington said.


Flickr, the photo sharing website is another three year denizen. It's been a steady and reliable way to post and share photos online for years. Some users, Arrington included, wish that Flickr and Facebook photos could somehow be housed under one roof. “There should just be one place in the cloud for photos, and all my social networks should access them there,” he said.


There are some new applications this year, one of the most notable is Zoho. Zoho is best described an online office product suite and an affordable solution for small businesses facing costly investments in Microsoft's Office products. From Wikis, to Calendars, to Presentations ““ it's all there and fairly easy to use. Arrington noted Zoho’s spreadsheet application was particularly well used around TechCrunch.
