I’m currently #2 on this list, behind Clay Shirky. (In spite of what may be the worst picture ever taken of me.) Context from Dan Thornton.

    Hey, it could be worse – Stwoe Boyd looks a lot like this guy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRe3gLoE0wU ;)

    And it’s well deserved!

    It might have started as a bit of fun (and a way to spark some interest in Ditto, which is one of the many websites I’m involved with ), but it’s quite interesting seeing one of the few public voting systems (rather than Google PR/Technorati etc), and how real people rank notable web individuals.

    The other good thing is that there’s no time limit, so hopefully it will keep growing and evolving with more individuals appearing and contributing.

    Doc, you are so right. Point us at another pic and we’ll get it changes asap! For the full grift on what ditto is trying to achieve, can I suggest you check out this post I wrote on Stowe’s /Message in which there’s also so audio of one of the founder’s Colin Kennedy explaining the plan?

    Thanks, Dan and david. Maybe we should keep that pic up just to help humble me. Meanwhile, if you like, the picture I prefer is the one with the ancient bio here: http://searls.com/dochome.html . There is a link there to the same pic in various sizes. Shortcut: http://searls.com/images/headshots/

    By the way – what you helped clarify with Cluetrain all the way thru to VRM is a HUGE inspiration to me. What YOU say I term as mandatory viewing… check it:
