Help Compile the Top 10 Startups List

2:00 PM -- Hey there.

Here at the luxurious Unstrung cubicle [ed. note: never mind the quality, feel the formica!], we've been making a list and checking it twice, but it would still be good to get your views on who has been naughty and who's been nice in 2007.

That's right, it is time for Unstrung's year-end Top Ten Startups list, and we'd like your suggestions on which companies should be on it. We already have a list in mind but thought it would be good to get reader feedback on which companies should stay, go, or be added to the list.

To be considered, the firms have to be young, three years old or less -- no double-digit startups please. And they have to have a fat VC roll, or innovative technology, or a proven revenue stream. Preferably some combination of all three.

We're casting our net wide this year in terms of the types of business considered. It could be anything from a hot new mobile video startup to an innovative carrier play; a new device vendor or a wireless payments company. Make your case and we'll consider it.

Please pitch your candidates on the message board below -- so that your fellow readers can cheer or jeer your choice -- or, if you're really a shrinking violet, you may write to me at [email protected].

Please get your entries in as soon as possible. We'll post the list as the bells toll for the Year of the Dragon.

Dan is to hats what Will.I.Am is to ridiculous eyewear. Fedora, trilby, tam-o-shanter -- all have graced the Jones pate during his career as the go-to purveyor of mobile essentials.

But hey, Dan is so much more than 4G maps and state-of-the-art headgear. Before joining the Light Reading team in 2002 he was an award-winning cult hit on Broadway (with four 'Toni' awards, two 'Emma' gongs and a 'Brian' to his name) with his one-man show, "Dan Sings the Show Tunes."

His perfectly crafted blogs, falling under the "Jonestown" banner, have been compared to the works of Chekhov. But only by Dan.
