ZDNet on TechCrunch Winners & Losers

Dan Fraber at ZDNet has posted a nice summary of the Web 2.0 Winners and Losers, as seen through the eyes of TechCrunch's Michael Arrington.

Arrington was presenting at The Future of Web Apps Summit conference. From the article:

Winners (got acquired): Writely,, Userplane, Flickr, Weblogs, Inc., Myspace, Bloglines, Truveo, Grouper, Skype, Newroo

Very good bets: Digg, Facebook YouTube, Photobucket, Zoho, Stumble Upon, Popsugar, PlentyofFish, Netvibes. Mike said
[if] he could be an executive at any of the companies, it would be Digg, which also drives 20 percent of TechCrunch traffic.

Ones to watch: Jobster, Riya, Zillow, Flock, Sharpcast, Rocketboom, 1-800-FREE411, oDesk, Second Life, WordPress

Arrington has been on the forefront of the Web 2.0 space over the past 15 months.

Of the ones that haven't yet been acquired, I really like PopSugar (make that Sugar Publishing, Inc.), Digg, Zillow, and Second Life. I also really like Automattic (if that's what he meant by Wordpress).

Arrington also announced that TechCrunch will add a new blog to the list, focused on the Enterprise market. Good news for me, as that's my sandbox. I'll see you over there.
