I just heard about this poll today via @bronwen. I’m not going to tell you how to vote or anything cheesy like that. I want to comment on the list itself. I don’t think any of the people on the list, except maybe Marty Wells from Tangler and Duncan Riley, who was probably running the Blog Herald back then, would have had any kind of public profile 5 years ago. Who were the OzWebCelebs five years ago and where are they now? Frank Arrigo should have garnered more votes and I’m sure if he’d blogged about it he would have. I just think it’s cool that there are a whole bunch of new people on the scene in Australia, most of whom I consider mates. I know most of the people on that list and I consider them a terrific bunch of people. They are people I love to talk to and hang out with. They inspire me, challenge me, and keep me on my toes. Most importantly, they are people who have chosen to make a difference. They are stepping up, putting their ideas and energy on the line, trying to create something, build something. I respect each and every one of them.
