The Time Magazine 100 (and a good read).

Most of you probably read early in the week that Mike Arrington (TechCrunch) squeaked into this year's Time Magazine list of 100 influential people.

Sitting with my wife in Borders today, I noticed that the profilers of each 'winner' were just as interesting as the winners themselves, in some cases. In Arrington's case, it was none other than Arianna Huffington, who probably can be credited for a large portion of the shift to online-only in news and opinion. For those new to 'these parts', she runs the Huffington Post or as they call it, "The Internet Newspaper".

Venture Capitalist Guy Kawasaki (and founder of Alltop, Truemors, etc.) profiled Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer (talk about timing!).

Of course, there were many other high profile tech names as well as politicians, musicians, and others.

The Dalai Lama piece was just cool.

The Time 100 is now online and makes some interesting reading. Be sure and check out the 'profilers' too. Then, head on over and check out Your Time 100 (Hint: Eliot Spitzer is No. 14. Influential?!).
