Apple just keeps racking ‘em up. Just yesterday, the company hit #7 on the most admired companies list compiled by Fortune. Today, Steve Jobs hits #2 on the list of the 50 Most Important People on the Web compiled by our cousins over at PCWorld.
Though he comes in at #2, Steve-o is beat out by not one, but three people: Apple board member Eric Schmidt, Sergey Brin, and Larry Page—also known as the executive team of Google. As far as rivals go, you won’t find anybody from Dell or HP making the list, and the lone Microsoft rep is Chief Software Architect Ray Ozzie at #22 (unless you count former MS mouthpiece Robert Scoble).
The rest of the list is pretty eclectic, with personalities ranging from Kevin Rose of Digg fame to Stanford’s Lawrence Lessig, from Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon to Tila Tequila of MySpace. Unfortunately, word has it that the MacUser crew just missed the cutoff at #51. Maybe next year.
