The Wired 40 List
Wired has released their list of the most Wired companies.
What makes a company wired? We start by looking for the basics: strategic vision, global reach, killer technology. But thatâ??s not enough. To land a spot on our annual Wired 40 list, a business also needs the X-factor â?? a hunger for new ideas and an impatience to put them into practice. Such companies inevitably become trendsetters, literally: As we debated and redebated the list this year, six major themes flickered into view. From the rise of peer production to the end of carbon pollution, they tell us where the world is heading. These are the companies leading the way.

I don’t know about any of you, but I appreciate a company that is working on lowering what I have to pay for power.
