Here are the contestants for Round 13:

Bloop
ProjectSpaces
FeedBurner
Bloglines
Purevolume
Fotolog
Ourmedia
Yub
Spot Runner
Myspace
News Alloy
Allmydata

Bloop couldn’t be found. Disqualified.

ProjectSpaces is a password protected web-based extranet application that lets groups collaborate securely over the internet.

FeedBurner burns and distributes RSS feeds of blogs and other web content. I use it and so does almost everyone I know.

Bloglines is an online RSS feed reader. It allows you to clip and store blog posts you want to refer to later and share your blogrolls and other content via a bloglines hosted blog. It is my primary feed reader, but based on my experience customer support is close to non-existent.

Purevolume is a service that lets independent artists upload MP3s. You can browse by location or by genre. It looks sort of like what MP3.Com was back before MP3.Com sucked.

Fotolog is a photo storage and sharing site, with an interconnected photo blog approach.

Ourmedia A audio, video content storage and sharing site. Nice, well designed service, but isn’t online video storage becoming a commodity?

Yub is an online mall where you can hang out if your parents won’t drive you to the real mall.

Spot Runner Sells TV ads. It says you can get your business on ESPN for $44. OK I want one Newsome.Org add on Sportscenter each week. If TV ads are this cheap, Spot Runner should be huge.

Myspace is, well, Myspace. I don’t get it, but millions of people do.

News Alloy is an online RSS feed reader.

Allmydata is an online file storage and backup service.

Before Today I’d Heard of:

4 out of 12.

And the Winner of Round 13 is:

I’d love to pick FeedBurner, but there’s no way not to pick Myspace. I don’t get it, but millions do.
