This week in The Guardian, the annual MediaGuardian 100 list is chock full of plenty of
talented media people, and includes a number of truly innovative digital types
who are shaping the emerging media landscape.
ranking is top heavy with choices from the BBC, and has a smattering of new
media types such as Eileen Gallagher, Chief Executive of Shed Media, and hails a few personalities like Simon
Cowell, Katie Price and Ant & Dec. I’m not in disagreement with the choices
for this highly influential
list, but I do feel there are some people missing.
around the fringes of the mainstream media is a busy, creative and
working-hard-in-the-trenches community of small entrepreneurs. Many are ‘doing
their own thing’ when it comes to media, in all the forms it takes. I’ve cherry
picked some folks from my immediate sphere of influence, and some who I think The
Guardian just missed the mark on, because they are a bit more
behind-the-scenes, but are leaders who I think are having an impact on the
emerging media landscape.
note, these choices are entirely my own, and I’d love to hear your
feedback about some of the people you think are rocking the media world these
applaud them, and celebrate all those who are contributing to an ever-changing information
delivery system, and who are making being informed, being entertained via
whatever form the media medium chooses to take. So
