Today, most social networks measure the popularity of features by ratings and votes. Startup Spigit, which provides lightweight business intelligence for social networks, calculates the validity of users and content based on contributions, user reputation, community feedback and buzz to help enterprises improve their networks. The company demoed IdeaSpigit, a new application geared to help companies that want to make actionable the feedback they receive from customers and partners.

The Web 2.0 Expo is traditionally a breeding ground for new technology demonstrations and this year's event in San Francisco was no exception. Here are six of the more memorable technologies, most of which are social and collaborative in nature, demonstrated on the Moscone West show floor April 23 through April 25. You'll notice half of them are online collaboration tools that would look great as part of larger feature sets at Cisco Systems, IBM or Microsoft, which begs the question: Which will remain independent one year from now?
