Too Many Lists

from the top-5-stupid-internet-people-lists dept

Salon (which appears to be in a complaining about excess mood today) takes a variety of techie magazines to task for all having pointless top “some random number” lists of richer and more famous people in the internet industry. Do we really care about these lists? The fact is, we are a society obsessed with success and fame, and we have PR agencies willing to do anything to promote their dot coms to pump up their stock options. All this results in lots of room for pointless lists of internet execs.
