Time Magazine's POTY - Web 2.0 
As you have most likely seen Time selected you/everyone as person of the year. I am not a Time magazine regular reader but, thought I would check out the mass media description of Web 2.0, "user-powered revolution",... Jon Steward of The Daily Show was bringing up the disturbing point that CNN was running a "news" blitz on Times Person of the year. The disturbing/annoying point is that CNN and Time are owned by the same parent company Time Warner Inc = Marketing Mixed with News!
I think Time did a decent job describing this all. The best portion of the article is the graphical representation on page 60 & 61 that shows the diffent companies and the factors that make them Web 2.0... You Make It, You Name It, You Work on It, You Find It. Also the groups of ToolMakers, Entertainers, Gathers. This was put together by Jeff Howe of Wired magazine. Not surprising as this is all old news to Wired magazine readers, Time's article is a dumbed down cliff notes on Web 2.0 when compared to Wired Mags coverage. Here are the Web 2.0 companies high lighted:
The Entertainers:
Revver.com, Bittorrent.org, Secondlife.com, Amazon.com, YouTube.com, Last.fm, NetFlix.com
The ToolMakers:
CraigsList.com, Linkedin.com, Google.com, Wikipedia.com, Ebay.com, Google Adsense, Google Maps, MySpace.com
The Gathers:
iStockphoto.com, Blogger Google, Flickr.com, Digg.com, del.icio.us, Bloglines.com, Technorati.com
