PC World

has just come out with its list of the

50 Most Important People on the Web


The Google guys top the list at number one, followed by several other Web celebrities, including Steve Jobs (Apple, #2), Jimmy Wales (Wikipedia, #5), Craig Newmark (Craigslist, #7) and Chad Hurley and Steve Chen (YouTube, #10).

And lo, sitting at number 16 on the list is Houston's own Matt Mullenweg, star of this Houston Press feature by resident babe Associate Editor Catherine Matusow. Mullenweg is a developer for WordPress, the blogging software responsible for countless posts about breakfast, cats and politics. Not to mention posts about the 50 Most Important People on the Web. — Keith Plocek
