MacTech 25 Most Influential?

Today, I received the most recent issue of MacTech Magazine. The cover story was about The MacTech 25: The 25 Most Influential Rock Stars, MVPSs, Prophets and Pundits of the Apple Technical Community. Curious about who made the list, I flipped to the cover story and started reading through the names.

At the start, the list was pretty much the people I expected, but when I turned the page, there was my name, following Dan Lyons and Brent Simmons, and preceding Leo Laporte and David Pogue. I knew a couple people had voted for me, but I really didn't expect to actually make the list. I'm still a little stunned, to be honest, and flattered. I haven't figured out yet if I'm supposed to be an MVP, "rock star", prophet, or pundit, though, but I'm flattered no matter which it is.

The fact that enough people appreciate my work enough to have voted for me means an awful lot more to me than actually being on the list, so I want to send a very sincere thank you out to the people who voted for me.

Congrats Jeff, your work certainly had a huge influence on me.

Congrats. Though, I thought mostly devs read this blog, which isn't a bad thing. It means that the devs have gained a bit more influence in the community.

And I there was I thinking I was in a select group who knew you existed! Congratulations you deserve recognition for all the help you've provided the community.

Congratulations.

Now if only Mactech had been relevant for the last - oh 15 years.

Congratulations! I'm new to the Cocoa / iPhone development community. Your blog has quickly become one of my favorites!

I'm afraid I didn't vote for you, but only because you are far more relevant to me than MacTech magazine, which I haven't seen since MacWorld '98.

C'mon now, MacTech is my absolute favorite magazine this month. Don't piss on my parade ;)

In all seriousness, though, most of the magazine these days does seem to be devoted to Mac IT stuff rather than development, but Dave Dribbin's Cocoa articles are actually a pretty damn good intro to Cocoa series.
