2011 is often touted as the year of the overheated startup scene, with echoes of the tech bubble in the late 90s. Yes, disruptive technologies are springing up every day. However, this year has also seen a confluence of existing technologies or solutions finally reaching a critical mass of users. Take Vimeo. Launched in 2004, it is certainly not a newly hatched idea — Facebook was also launched in 2004, Twitter in 2006, the iPhone in 2007 and Groupon towards the very end of 2008. Yet it seems that it really only gained critical recognition in 2010, moving from 14.5 million unique visitors in December 2009 to 45 million monthly uniques currently.  It is also ranked at 148 in the Alexa traffic rankings, up from 600 this time last year.
