Time Top 100 2006

The Time Magazine has published it's list of Top 100 people for 2006. The tagline says it all : "Here's our list of top 100 men and women whose power, talent or moral example is transforming our world."

The list is long and exhaustive, but there are some who I would like to mention. First of all, there are two Indians in the group. The first one being Vikram Akula, who is using smart cards to make venture capital available to rural India. Then comes the Infy boss, Nandan Nilekani, he is a founder, and currently president, of Infosys Technologies Ltd. From our neighbours, there is only Parvez Musharaf. From hollywood, there is Philip Seymour Hoffman, Ang Lee and ofcourse George Clooney (I wonder how he got there, he really sucks...)

It must have been a difficult job to go through 6.5 billion people and come out with an exclusive group of a hunderd. You can see the complete list here. (link)
