I have to admit that I'm a really bad Web 2.0 application user. I don't even use GMail regularly, and I actually prefer MS Office to Google Documents.
But a few of them have stuck - wikis and blogs, obviously; Google Maps (though I use Google Earth far more); Linkedin still does its job; and somewhat reluctantly, Facebook; but also Dopplr, who just got out of beta! (Remember the time where everything was in perpetual beta? These new kids, they actually launch!)
Dopplr is wonderful in its simplicity. It does really only one thing - records your travels and allows you to meet up with others on your trips, but it does it well - and I happen to be in the smack middle of the target group. So yeah, it stuck.
You see, business travel is bloody lonely, most of the time. You sleep alone, you eat alone, you explore the city alone (if you have the time). Sometimes not, but often yes. So it's great to even know that there are others traveling about, other people in the same situation. And sometimes, you manage to say hi to someone you know that you haven't seen in a while. It's great :)
