THE FIRST annual “Open Media 100″, a list of key players (in five categories: Pioneers, Trendsetters, Practitioners, Toolsmiths and Enablers) in the online blogging and social networking field is out — thanks to AlwaysOn and Technorati (which tracks more than 11.5 million weblogs and over 1.2 billion links).
Although many of these folks may never grace the pages of the high-gloss pubs, they will most certainly be keeping an independent eye on those who do. As we’ve all witnessed, this is already happening. Both Dan Rather and CNN news chief Eason Jordon were handed their walking papers after being busted by bloggers.
