Time Magazine just released its list of the 25 Most Influential People on them interwebs. Sadly, I did not make the cut. In fact, with a few exceptions – Matt Drudge and the Tweeter in Chief – the whole is is devoid of anyone with meaningful contribution. This highlights the culture of celebrity-worship, ignorance, and mindless zombie-ism.

After Drudge it’s a cavalcade of entertainers, rappers, Kim Kardashian, a cartoon frog, and people I’ve never heard of.

I’m sure some of these folks do contribute something to the web and the world – all of them, in some way and in their own way. “You are what you eat” doesn’t just apply to Cheetos and Twinkies. Like TeeVee the internet runs the risk of falling victim to promoting the lowest common denominator.

That’s not you, obviously – you’re here. I thank you for that.
