The Web 2.0 Startup Map: 2009 Edition
Back in 2006, Berlin-based Ludwig Gatzke put together a chart showing all of the Web 2.0 companies at the time. As we know, since then companies have been acquired and many have shut down for one reason or another. London-based Meg Pickard has put together a new version (seen below) of the chart which combines companies that have been acquired in green circles and companies that have closed in the letter X.
Meg works at The Guardian newspaper in the UK and updated the chart because she knew the landscape has changed since the chart was first produced. Amit at Digital Inspiration has additional comments about both charts – sadly both Meg and Amit seem to think there are only two startup review blogs :)
After watching the interview with Digg’s Owen Byrne, the truth is that the more times you fail, the more likely you are to have a success. When I was younger someone once told me that to find the perfect woman, you have to date a lot of wrong ones. If you only date one, the chances of her being perfect is pretty low.
