10 Hot Web Startups You Should Know About

InformationWeek highlights 10 companies whose services and applications have the potential to bring about a revolutionary change in the way the Web works.

The Web is all about using the Internet as a platform to offer services instead of static information or downloads. Collaboration often is key to making these services work. Sites like Wikipedia, Digg, del.icio.us, and Salesforce.com live on the force of community contribution. A network of contributors makes the difference, giving services personality and relevance through sharing and the open review of work.

The next generation of Web startups, pushing the philosophy of the programmable Web, is often lumped together under the trendy Web 2.0 moniker. They pop up like weeds and range from collaborative calendars and word processors to desktop search applications and mash-ups that combine disparate sites such as Craigslist and Google Maps.
