This week I will be looking at five companies/websites that seem to get a lot of publicity yet do not “do it” for me. As bloggers there are times where we might get too caught up in the hype of something new maybe because it uses Ajax or some other cool technology or maybe just because it was made by someone that we all revere.
These entries are not meant to bash the people behind the projects, but to look at them a bit differently than what the masses have been writing about. This series was partially inspired by an entry on Anil Dash’s site titled, How Do We Judge Our Tools?.
I currently have four sites lined up and am looking for a 5th so if there is any website/web application out there that makes you wonder what the big deal is then let me know.
