Websites that changed the world: Guardian Unlimited

Guardian Unlimited, a UK newspaper with a large subscriber base, has published a list of websites that changed the world. The list is numbered and there are 15 sites on the list, but if the numbers indicate their rank, then I have to strongly disagree. Number 1 on the list is eBay, followed by Wikipedia, and Napster in the number 2 and 3 spot. While I can see the case for Napster, I think it was Napster the application that revolutionized the web rather than Napster the site. The usual suspects - Google, Yahoo!, and Amazon - also grace the list and there are a few surprises (Friends Reunited), but overall it is a respectable with good background information about each site.
