TidBITS Publisher Ranks Third in MDJ Power 25 -- In the now-annual survey of industry insiders coordinated by Macintosh publication MDJ, TidBITS publisher Adam C. Engst once again placed in the top five most influential figures in the Macintosh industry. This year Adam claimed third place, coming in behind Apple CEO Steve Jobs (no surprise there!), and giving up last year's second place spot to Apple's head of software engineering, Avie Tevanian, the man most directly responsible for Mac OS X. Rounding out the top five were Microsoft chairman Bill Gates in fourth place and Apple's hardware design virtuoso, Jonathan Ive. Congratulations to Adam and the others recognized in the MDJ Power 25!
