Best/coolest web2.0 sites

Discussion in 'HTML & Website Design' started by zchoose, Aug 29, 2007.

    Hey everybody,

    I'm looking for several examples of sites with cool (and functional) web2.0 designs.
    SEMrush
    I'm less interested in seeing really cool artistic sites than I am in seeing sites that would actually be usable for business, but send any and all ideas!

    Thanks,
    zchoose

    I think Skype is a great website. I have friends across the globe and Skype is a great networking tool

    Give my site site, Coffeesh0p.com, a look. The Shop has a drag'n'drop shopping basket (drag product images into the basket at the bottom) and an autocomplete search thing. Try searching for "salvia" or "seeds".

    Thoughts?

    Very much appreciate everyone's examples.

    As well as the design aspects, I found several of the sites very interesting and unfortunately giving me even more interesting things to read each day. :)

    Thanks again.

    Others can feel free to keep posting as I'll keep stopping back by.

    Love the stuff by 37 Signals.

    I keep wondering about Ruby on Rails (is that what they use?).

    zchoose,

    They guy who developed Ruby on Rails works at 37signals. It is mentioned at the bottom of Ruby on Rails page.

    May be some of the designers here can create a design for web2.0 applications. Not just the main page, but several alternative layouts, some elements: tables, different type of message boxes etc. Similar to mollio in approach, but mollio is not web2.0 and looks too complicated to me anyway.

    I will be willing to sponsor it. May be some other people as well.

    Cool does not go with Web 2.0 - the term 'sick fad with no defined actual meaning does', as do words like 'marketspeak', 'buzzword' and other derogatory terms.... bunch of nonsensical rubbish being pushed with wonderful time proven methods like assertion, bandwagon, transfer, glittering generalities and a whole host of other ways of pushing some nutjob made up bullshit with propaganda techniques... and only total simpletons who know little or nothing about this 'intarweb' - like the nimrods who take technical advice from Forbes are dumb enough to fall for it.

    Hell, it makes SEO look like a legitimate business concept.

    Not that I can talk given I just used assertion, name calling, simplification, testimonial and plain folks ;)

    This says it better than I ever could.

    It is important not only to recognize the techniques - but to see the intent.

    ... and the men folks to feed.

    At least web 2.0 isn't as bad as the FSF 'agenda'.
