Top ten sites that changed the way we see things this decade

1) Google -- GMail, Wave, Voice, iGoogle, Search, Froogle, Maps...

2) Facebook

3) MySpace

4) Twitter

5) eBay

6) Amazon

7) Gizmodo/Lifehacker/Kotaku -- the family that keeps on giving you news on... everything

8) Torrent sites -- isohunt, thepiratebay, mininova (now deceased) to name a few

9) Yahoo -- started it all, now kind of insignificant

10) Yelp, et al -- changing the way you see restaurants and other businesses

Hahaha. It's one of those things you use so much, etc. etc.

Oh, what about like blogs in general, or a site like the Huffington Post?

How about torrenting or file "sharing"? It was a huge trend especially earlier in the decade. And some of that has evolved into places like iTunes, which has remained pretty huge.

If Al replaced Gizmodo and Yelp with wikipedia and Youtube, it would pretty much be a permutation of my list.
