Although having many international list, this is still a britain-oriented list. What is also missing from the list are the tool makers, and plaform makers who have made it possible for people to express themselves better.

What would a more global Online Publisher hall of Fame 2006 would look like?

Here are my additions to the list. Although Flickr and Youtube have been bought by bigger companies but the work they are doing remains undiluted:

51 &52. Chad Hurley, left, and Steven Chen, YouTube founders.
Made online video big.

53. Joshua Schachter, founder
The tagging and social bookmarking initiative

54. Darren Rouse, Problogger publisher
Giving out advice to bloggers who want to make it big in the online publishing.

55. Jason Calacanis, Weblogsinc head honcho
Created a profitable Blog publishing empire. Still doing new stuff and extending mass media best practices to new media. May still rescue AOL.

56. Kevin Rose, Digg Co-founder
Made social news popular. Ratings and all that...

57. Gabe Reviera, Founder, Memeorandum
Unique, pagerank-like algorithm to look for news from a list of carefully chosen sources.

58& 59. Publisghers of and
Creating news items that users pay to read - the holy grail.

60. Rich Skrenta: Co-Founder, CEO, Topix
350,000+ topics and counting, plus local news and zip-wise news.

61 &62. Stewart Butterfield & Caterina Fake, founders, Flickr
Pushed up the online photo revolution.

63-100: There are countless others pushing the boundaries of online publishing. For example, self help and DIY is big are. Help me out here finishing this list. I am positive there will be more than hundred.

I like the way you opened up the list beyond people in traditional media. Online media is about more than turning newspapers into Web properties.
