In the News CNN made a top 10 list of people who do not matter anymore in the tech industry. Among them, Steve Ballmer, Linus Torvalds, Jonathan Schwartz, Rob Malda from Slashdot, and Ken Kutaragi (responsible for the Playstation). This list is actually a by-product from their top 50 list of people who do matter; which containts, among others, Steve Jobs.

I think the claim that all these important people 'do not matter' must be a tongue-in-cheek sort of idea. These people chosen are obviously a lot more important in the IT world than you or I are. But I think the point of the article is to use a clever, attention-catching device, however flawed it is, to make nonetheless significant points about these people's changing roles.
