    Can’t wait to see the US based start ups that elaborate off of a creative UK/Europe based start up/idea. It seems to always happen, and vice versa.

    Guys! WTF!? Where’s PREZI!?

    http://www.prezi.com

    One of my favs for design and just software innovation is prezi. It may be more software than web, but with the web-based free version I would still put it in that category.

    It’s basically the love-child of powerpoint and photosynth. The best 3D presentation stuff I’ve ever messed around with.

    Waayyy too pricey for me though, and they leave a huge logo on the presentation if you use the free version.

    Prezi lost to My Name is E (don’t see how) in another competition and TechCrunch it and the competition in April.

    I think prezi should be bundled with MSOffice and put on every PC. Kind of what Bumptop wants to do, another amazing-but not European- application.
    (Note: I’m just a fan, not an employee or investor)

    The nominees in the category of cleantech are in my eyes not very interesting.
    Alertme is fascinating but SpeedCell and Dopplr?

    I hope, next year there will be real new things…
