Top Ten WebApps. Several bloggers have pointed to this list of the top ten webapps. Carsonified did a straw poll of about 3,000 colleagues, friends and others round the world in order to create the list. While the top 4 are not in the least surprising; (Gmail, Flickr, Twitter and Facebook); the 5th was perhaps unexpected. It’s Ravelry – a knitting and crochet community. Looking at as much of the site as I can see without being a member (there’s a waiting list of almost 7,000), it seems that they do have a range of useful features, such as the ability to locate local wool shops (or, rather, yarn shops, as it’s a US based site), forums, pattern sharing facilities.
Their own stats would seem to suggest they’re a popular site – supporting the votes that Carsonified collected.
