49 important people and a porn model

PC World’s list of the 50 most important people on the Web that came out today includes at #50 Tila Tequila, a model whose claim to fame is having almost 2 million MySpace friends. I mildly disagree with a few of the other choices like

  • including Nick Denton/Gawker Media (45) without mentioning Jason or Weblogs Inc.
  • placing Kos (24) above Jeff Bezos (25), Kevin Rose (32), and Sir Tim Berners-Lee (46)
  • having David Farber on the list – mailing lists are not Web-specific

but including Tila at all is a disgrace. What’s so important about yet another model on the Internet? Here’s a newsflash: MySpace users are not picky about whom they add as friends, especially when it comes to naked women.
