AlwaysOn and Technorati “Open Media 100”

We at Blogcritics are deeply honored, and I am personally touched, to have been selected among the inaugural AlwaysOn and Technorati “Open Media 100 – the power list of bloggers, social networkers, tool smiths, and investors leading the Open Media Revolution.”

I mean this is a serious, serious list of big-timers and innovators and we are profoundly humbled to be included in such company. We appreciate that our little corner of the blogosphere — our microcosm of the blogosphere with over 1000 members — has been included among the technical, conceptual, and intellectual giants of the field.

Always On’s Tony Perkins describes the list further, “You might think of the Open Media 100 as the new, new establishment – people you may not know but probably should. 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.

“The purpose of this list is to provide an initial, helpful framework of this emerging industry and highlight its key players who are influencing the adoption of open media and proving the impact it is already having on the technology industry, journalism, and marketing,” he writes.

The list is divided into Pioneers, Trendsetters (Blogcritics was selected here), Practitioners, Toolsmiths, and Enablers. The list was created via “subjective and objective processes,” including nominations from bloggers, surveys, and measurable data using Technorati’s blog search engine, which tracks more than 11.5 million weblogs and over 1.2 billion links.
