Loved this list of most influential. For me there are some standouts...I love Robert Downey,Jr. and am so impressed with his sobriety after so many set backs. He's an incredible artist and very articulate. Oprah...need I say more...using money for good. Barack Obama...the dreamer; whether or not he gets the nomination, hope he doesn't become discouraged by the politics of America. Dalai Lama...one word...peace. Why can't we all just get along? Elizabeth Gilbert...In her book, Eat, Pray, Love, I was so impressed with the fact of how she was so willing to show us all her warts; so willing to let us in to see her raw emotions. Great book. The real most influential people, however, are those un-famous people who go to third world countries to help the poor and oppressed. Those that bring medical care to the dying children and food to the starving. They are out there doing their thing with largely no attention to their lofty endeavors. Saving the human race one person at a time. I applaud the big names that do this too...like George Clooney and Brad and Angelina. Using their notoriety for the good of others. As a nurse, that has always been a dream of mine...faraway places helping the sick. Maybe someday.

Interesting point about the women... well, your entire post is fascinating, but I'm intrigued with women being the most prolific web users. What does this mean for the future of e-commerce, bloghing, and news? A great deal, I'm sure.

But wait! Do I have to cut out gin & tonic this summer? No, it can't be!!
