A very interesting email was waiting for me this morning in my inbox. My week-end round-up from the Guardian which in turn lead me to an article in the Observer/Guardian about “Websites that changed the world“.
Although this is the list that follows, do take a look at the article, it’s far more interesting than the simple list below :
Amazon used to be a large river in South America – but that was before the world wide web.
I personally feel that Google has had a bigger impact than being at number 13, but hey, being reunited with your friends is priceless isn’t it. However being placed after salon.com, what’s that about ? Have you heard people say just google it, and what about just salon.com it ? I think this is more about the Guardian/Observer journalists admiration than true ‘influence’ (sorry, changing the world) along with several other sites like Drudgereport, SlashDot etc. for them to be placed higher than Google.
