Time magazine has come out with its annual list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World. You’ve got your Tony Blair, Rupert Murdoch, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos, and Mark Zuckerberg. All the usual suspects. Digg CEO Jay Adelson squeezes onto the list, as does our own Michael Arrington as the token blogger. (See full list here).
The way the list is put together is that Time tries to get one famous person to write about another. So you have Craig Newmark on Zuckerberg, Guy Kawasaki on Steve Ballmer, and Arianna Huffington on Arrington (how apropos).
Congratulations to one and all. Can you find Michael on the cover at right? (Click to enlarge). Neither could I at first, but he’s there. Hint: Look for the profile in silhouette. At least, I think that’s him.
