Guardian names UK's top 100 tech media companies

seatwave.gifNot long ago a Guardian writer claimed that the UK tech scene was being read its last rites. Well, according to the paper today that is a long way from the truth. The Guardian has published a list of what it sees as the top UK 100 tech companies along with a feature from TechCrunch UK editor Mike Butcher in which he claims there has never been a better time to create a start up.

As for the hot 100 you can see the list here. There aren’t too many surprises in the top 10, though I know of a few people who will be highly irritated to see Seatwave make the top spot. The big winners include Spotify (hey the iPhone app is here), Moo (who make those ever so cools cards) and Mindcandy (cool multi player online games).

Most of the other 90 are either industry type start-ups like pioneering ad company Skimlinks and image search specialist Pixsta. The key consumery companies that make the list include VOIP service Truphone, music identifying service Shazam, virtual record company Slicethepie, Twitter aggregator Tweetmeme and online community builder Webjam.

    Paul Carr and the Guardian don’t agree on anything. He sees Skimlinks differently to the Guardian and call it Whorespace shilling to your readers. Does the Guardian use it, it wouldn’t be impartial if it does.
