We're Number Two!

We're Number Two! Congratulations to TidBITS publisher Adam Engst for his second place ranking in the MDJ Power 25, a survey ranking the 25 most influential people in the Macintosh community! Adam's ranking was second only to Apple iCEO Steve Jobs - who claimed the top seat by a wide margin - but also well ahead of other Apple executives, influential developers and technical folks, plus industry luminaries like Adobe's John Warnock and Microsoft's Bill Gates. The survey, which marks the relaunch of the highly regarded MDJ, the Daily Journal for Serious Macintosh Users, compiled private responses from a large group of Macintosh insiders, development executives, programmers, journalists, and industry observers, who were each asked to name who they felt were the five most powerful and influential Macintosh people. MDJ compiled the responses, listing the top 25 vote-getters, honorable mentions, and figures mysteriously missing in action. When I spoke with Adam (who's still in New York after Macworld Expo) about the survey results, he said that it was an honor to be recognized in this way by prominent figures of the Macintosh community. Over the last ten years, we at TidBITS have strived to make friends rather than enemies, and to focus on the person behind the personal computer rather than doggedly pursuing technology for its own sake. It's tremendously rewarding when people in every part of the Macintosh community find that work useful and worthwhile.
