MacTech 25 Most Influential Survey

Send Article to a Friend

MacTech 25 Most Influential Survey -- MacTech Magazine has opened the voting for the MacTech 25, a community-chosen list of the 25 most influential people in the Macintosh technical universe. MacTech has designed it to "recognize the technical contributions of developers, writers, bloggers, problem-solvers, and personalities to the Macintosh community," excluding only Apple employees and MacTech staff and columnists (some of whom would likely do well otherwise). Voting in the MacTech 25 is open to anyone, through 15-Jun-06. We would of course appreciate votes for our publisher, Adam Engst (who has ranked in the top five of the MDJ Power 25 every year, behind only Apple employees), along with other TidBITS staff members, and if we do well, we promise to use the vast power that will undoubtedly accrue to the winners only for good. But we really hope there isn't a second-round swimsuit competition.

Speaking of MacTech, which a couple of years ago morphed from a programmer's journal to a more general technical Mac magazine, we notice that if you're interested in subscribing, Microsoft's Mac Business Unit (which has been working with MacTech on articles about integrating Macs into Windows-centered networks and similar kinds of topics) is sponsoring a limited number of six-month "free" subscriptions to MacTech to those that qualify ("free" because there's still a $10 postage and handling fee to make sure people really want the magazine, which would normally cost over $50 on the newsstand). The deal requires filling out a short survey and is available only to those in the United States and Canada (though there are other deals for more far-flung readers). [JLC]
