Brian Scarbeau Insights from a seasoned Computer Science Trainer

The Communications magazine that is published by ACM had an article based on a survey that listed a top ten Technology Influencers list. Intel organized a panel of experts to vote for the 45 most influential figures in technology over the last 150 years. Yes, that's not a typo, 150 years!

Top ten:

1. Tim Berners-Lee (www)

2. Sergey Brin (Google)

3. Larry Page (Google)

4. Gugliemo Marconi (radiotelegraph)

5. Jack Kilby (integrated circuit and calculator)

6. Gordon Moore (Intel)

7. Alan Turing ( Pioneer in deciphering German Code in WWII)

8.  Robert Noyce (Intel)

8. William Shockley( co-inventor transistor)

10. Don Estridge (IBM)

 

So, what's your take on this list?  No Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, Bill Gates, Paul Allen, Dr. John G. Kemeny and Thomas Kurtz. Anyone you'd take off the list?
