The Time 100 of 2011: Most Influential Technologists
The Time 100 of 2011 was released today which includes a mix of the most influential people in the world. This list consists of artists, activists, reformers, researchers, heads of state, captains of industry and technologists.
Some of the featured technologists include:
1. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook Founder
2. Larry Page, Google CEO
3. Reed Hastings, Netflix CEO
4. Peter Vesterbacka, Angry Birds Game Developer
5. Arianna Huffington, The Huffington Post Co-Founder
6. Charles Chao, Sina Weibo CEO (China’s Twitter)
I’m sure a few of these names do not come as a surprise (i.e. Mark Zuckerberg). But with the technology industry growing in leaps and bounds, there has to be a few key influencers missing from the list. One name that comes to mind for me is Pete Cashmore, Mashable Founder and CEO. He didn’t make it on this year’s list although he was included in 2010’s.
Who has significantly propelled the technology field that you feel is missing from the list? Or do you feel the list is accurately portrayed?
