Business 2.0: The 50 Who Matter Now


In their second annual ranking, "Business 2.0 has compiled an unabashedly subjective list of people, products, trends, and ideas that are transforming the world of business."

Some surprises (Jay Adelson instead of Kevin Rose, that guy who started that Hawaiin search engine, the fake Steve Jobs and "you"). Some predictable ones (the real Steve Jobs, Larry, Serge & Eric and Jimbo Wales). Some non-people honorees (agile software dev, private equity).

Check out the complete list (in slideshow format).


How come I never make that list?

Worthy of mention in this thread is now this could be my chance to walk the path to becoming a corrupt editor. Hmmm

strange priorities betray audience

That CNNMoney article is telling... Business 2.0 masquerading as a Web2.0 style Fortune Magazine. Mostly fluff, misplaced priority, misleading functonality. What does that say? If you ask me it discredits CNN in financial media. BUT, that might just be what flies as financial media with the current Generation X-Box?

Very Sad. Huffington and Sam Zell in the same list of key people in business. Are they listed because they want to appear hip in their otherwise staid corporate digs (CEO of Pepsi) or merely hip and looking to appear more business-credible (Mahala guy, Digg guy, etc).

Coming soon to my blog the Top 50 Independent SEO Consultants Who Matter in the Fortune 100 space. That should provide some validation, eh? I only need abut 47 more so email me if you're doing Fortune 100 work...
