Great web apps with strange names

The last couple of years have seen a proliferation of great web applications. And for some reason, the fashion is to give them bizarre names like Loopt, Mobunga, and Lijit. (Any guesses what they do?) The collage of "web 2.0" logos on the left provides plenty of examples (click on the image to link to the website where they provide a huge high-resolution version).

So here are my favorite strangely-named but wonderful web apps:

Jango is a free, customizable internet radio service. The way it works takes a little getting used to, but it's a terrific way to hear lots of great music.


SUMO Paint is an awesome online image editor.


Weebly is a free service that lets you easily create and host a website.


Slinkset lets you create a social news site. For example, I created StatLinks in just a couple of minutes.


Finally, here's a clever web application whose name says it all: MizPee.

Hey Nick,

Names may be clever, but looks can be deceiving...

For example Publishers Union of Bloggers currently advise Publishers hold off installing any Lijit Software on their blogs pending both Lijit’s promised upcoming transparency from Lijit concerning revenue for publishers and reworking of Lijit's current 'terms of use' which currently gives Lijit free reign concerning use of your content once our Publishers install Lijit Software into their blog.

Any thoughts on these critical issues for Pub's, pass it on, all appreciate it.
