Local entrepreneur Joseph Renzi has secured two places in BRW Magazine's Top 100 Web 2.0 Applications list for his successful online ventures - www.ourwishingwell.com and www.swapace.com.The list was officially launched today - with the sites achieving 14th and 20th place respectively.

Applications that met the strict criteria were assessed on revenue and viability, users, international success, business value, innovation and Web 2.0 features.

Joseph Renzi, CEO of SwapAce.com and OurWishingWell.com said "This is a great achievement for both SwapAce.com and OurWishingWell.com. We are excited about the opportunities that Web 2.0 creates for both business and consumers".

SwapAce.com is a leading Australian online barter site used to sell, buy and swap products, services, employment and events. The sites unique patented features enable bartering of products and services, multiple offers and counter-offers and negotiation on non-financial components. Unlike other online auction sites, SwapAce.com is free to list items, buy, swap and sell.

OurWishingWell.com is an international gift registry that enables people to list unique gifts from anywhere and guests can donate money towards these gifts from anywhere in the world. OurWishingWell.com can be used for any occasion and also includes the option to build your own personalised event website.

Web 2.0 companies take the internet from a passive medium to a hands-on experience where users can interact with each other, share content, contribute to discussions and express themselves like never before.

Renzi believes that Web 2.0 applications are key to business success. Through wiki-assisted collaboration the team has been able to quick test and implement ideas in a rapidly changing environment.
