AO / Technorati Open Media 100

I'm happy to announce that the AO/Technorati Open Media 100 list has been published! This list includes bloggers and influencers who's groundbreaking work is changing the technology industry, journalism, and marketing. This list is a start, and I know there will be much discussion and I personally invite your comments.

The process for compiling the list was relatively straightforward. Tony Perkins and his editorial team were responsible for the subjective work. Technorati's role was to provide the objective methods via our Technorati Top 100 Blogs list. We also included all of you by asking for nominations.

We hope this list provides a framework, starts some discussion, and, ultimately, brings some new readers and attention to the blogosphere. This was a first and we'll continue to refine and improve the process over the next year for 2006 Open Media List. We hope you'll continue to be part of that process as well.
