“The best things in life and internet are free, but they are banned when and where you need to try them.” – ~uh~, 2009
I came to know about Webware 100 2009 through an alert mail sent from Jamendo, one of the music download sites I am member of. There is anonline voting going on to select thetop websites under various categories using votes from internet users. Some of the categories are for more professional requirement, but many of them are which we use everyday. There are Ten categories as follows-
Audio & Music
Infrastructure & Storage
Photo & Video
Search & Reference
Social Networking & Publishing
Check out the finalists under the categories. Alongwith known Facebook, Youtube, Myspace there are many more sites to know about. It’s amazing to note how many of these useful sites exists. Most importantly, most of these sites are legal and free to use and download their contents .
The finalists for Social networking sites are-
For Photo and video-
Amazon Video on Demand
Picasa Web Albums
I am sure you will find atleast few sites you have never heard of!
The voting is open till 30 April 2009. The results would be published on 19 may 2009.
You can get an idea of the internet leaders from last year’s winners.
I get a high out of discovering new sites and finding out which of them beats my office firewall.
Amazing it may seem but after an massive upgradation in firewall Stumbling is banned but Twitter works.
Irony of life.
