I just found this and had to let you know. It's a list from PCWorld that gives the top 50 people on the Web.
On it there's people we all recognise who've built up the landscape we call the Internet.
They include the founders of Google, eBay, Amazon, BitTorrent, RSS, Digg, Fark, Slashdot.org and also people you just wont recognise.
Of course the "inventor" of the world wide web and how we use it Sir Tim Berners-Lee is there.
As is Robert Scoble the man who softened Microsoft's image and made them appear human and able to surmount their inevitable stumbles.
