25 hot startups has come up with a list of the "Next Net 25," 25 startups that are bound for great success, great failure, or something in between (my bet is great failure for most, if not all).

They're very interesting startups. There seems to be an overweighting in television and video startups, but my pick is, founded by the same guys who started kazaa and Skype, Janus Friis and Niklas Zennstrom. These guys don't know how to fail, it seems.

They're smart, inventive, and not afraid to knock over the apple cart. Joost just signed a deal with Viacom, beating out Google-owned YouTube.
