TidBITS Publisher Adam Engst #3 in MDJ Power 25 -- As much as we generally avoid blowing our own horn here at TidBITS, we should note that TidBITS publisher Adam C. Engst was once again rated #3 in the MDJ Power 25, an annual survey which attempts to assess who wields power and influence in the Macintosh community. This year, Adam is the only person in the top five of the MDJ Power 25 who is not an Apple employee: first place again went to Apple CEO Steve Jobs, with Apple's Senior VP of Software Engineering Avie Tevanian taking second place. Jonathan Ive (Apple's VP of Design) took fourth place, and Tim Holmes, Apple's Mac OS Technology Manager, took fifth. Congratulations to Adam and all the worthy folks in the MDJ Power 25! [GD]
