MacTech has released their MacTech 25
for the second year in a row
-- it's a list of the top 25 most influential people in the Mac community (as selected by the community itself), and it reads like a who's who of people doing great stuff : John Gruber
, the suave-looking Aaron Hillegass
and Brent Simmons
all make return appearances. This year they chose everyone who's ever programmed for MarsEdit
(as Daniel Jalkut is happy to say
), not to mention both co-founders of Rogue Ameoba
, Paul Kafasis and Alex Lagutin.
Who's missing? Anyone from Apple-- MacTech specifically left them off the list to make sure they didn't hog the Spotlight
, so to speak. They say that Apple employees are allowed to be put in the Honorable Mentions section, but as far as I can tell, while Leo Laporte, David Pogue and Merlin Mann all made it, no one from Apple actually did. Better get cracking on those influencing techniques
for next year, guys.
