In spite of Time magazines declaration that I am the most powerful and influential person on the web (an assertion that I wholeheartedly agree with), PC World begs to differ.
At PC World we love online personals, social networks, and videos of people falling on their keisters as much as the next person, but without the folks who create the Craigslists, MySpaces, and YouTubes of the world, much of the Web’s potential would be lost among spam sites and other online detritus.
And so, the publication has made another list of the 50 most important people on the web. One that, for reasons unknown to me, doesn’t have me listed. The top 5 on the list, with the inclusion of some quite obvious choices are:
1. Eric Schmidt, Larry Page, and Sergey Brin, Executives, Google
2. Steve Jobs, CEO, Apple
3. Bram Cohen, Cofounder, BitTorrent
4. Mike Morhaime, President, Blizzard Entertainment
5. Jimmy Wales, Founder, Wikipedia
Check out the complete list.
