Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World

24th April 2012

Time magazine has announced its 100 most influential people in the word, in a list including entertainers, businesspeople, political leaders, sporting figures and controversial personalities.

The ninth annual list includes Warren Buffett, Apple CEO Tim Cook, Hillary Clinton, Angela Merkel and Christine Lagarde.

One of the lists most successful innovative entrepreneurs is Salman Khan, who has created an amazing library of online academic lectures. The aspiration of khanacademy.org is to give every child a chance at a free, world-class education.

Another leading light is Pete Cashmore. Mashable, born in his bedroom in Scotland when he was 19, is a website leading the conversation about technological change.

Daniel Ek’s company Spotify has revolutionized the music business and has given artists the opportunity to recoup the revenue once washed away by Internet piracy. He is also featured on the Time list, as is Sara Blakely, who has helped women and men hide their spare tyres and has become a billionaire ion the process of creating Spanx.

Inspirational Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius, the South African double-amputee sprinter, has pushed the limits of the human body with awe-inspiring results, and is deserving of his place on the roll of honour, alongside Mario Monti – the world’s most important ex-economics professor, whose meaningful reform could possibly lead Europe out of the current debt crisis.
