Top 5 from Web 2.0 Expo

Rafe, Josh, and Erica pick their top 5 services from the Web 2.0 Expo.

The first Web 2.0 Expo is behind us, and it was a good show. In addition to dozens of interesting panels (including, if I do say so, mine), there were about 115 companies presenting on a crowded expo show floor, and six interesting company presentations during the "Launchpad" sessions that ran on Monday and Tuesday.

With's Josh Lowensohn and's Erica Ogg, we picked our Top 5 Web 2.0 services from the conference. They are:

    • Tellme
    • , which has a new downloadable app for getting useful 411-like info on your mobile phone. (news)

    • Octopz
    • , a very slick collaboration service we covered a few days ago. (hands-on)

    • Dapper
    • , which can make any Web site into an RSS feed or widget. (field report)

    • Coghead
    • , a Web-based database that just came out of beta. (hands-on)

    • Spock
    • , the upcoming people search engine. (preview)
