I’m currently #2 on this list, behind Clay Shirky. (In spite of what may be the worst picture ever taken of me.) Context from Dan Thornton.

Hey, it could be worse – Stwoe Boyd looks a lot like this guy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRe3gLoE0wU 😉

And it’s well deserved!
It might have started as a bit of fun (and a way to spark some interest in Ditto, which is one of the many websites I’m involved with ), but it’s quite interesting seeing one of the few public voting systems (rather than Google PR/Technorati etc), and how real people rank notable web individuals.
The other good thing is that there’s no time limit, so hopefully it will keep growing and evolving with more individuals appearing and contributing.

Doc, you are so right. Point us at another pic and we’ll get it changes asap! For the full grift on what ditto is trying to achieve, can I suggest you check out this post I wrote on Stowe’s /Message in which there’s also so audio of one of the founder’s Colin Kennedy explaining the plan?

Thanks, Dan and david. Maybe we should keep that pic up just to help humble me. Meanwhile, if you like, the picture I prefer is the one with the ancient bio here: http://searls.com/dochome.html . There is a link there to the same pic in various sizes. Shortcut: http://searls.com/images/headshots/

Doc – atleast you didnt turn out like I did!:
By the way – what you helped clarify with Cluetrain all the way thru to VRM is a HUGE inspiration to me. What YOU say I term as mandatory viewing… check it:
Its even inspiring The Communication Ideal (which Dan and David are collaborators on) here:
You rock – we follow you.

@Ednever @realjohngatto If the kid wants to be an engineer and to learn what it takes. And castes are what IQ testing creates. Been there.

@johnny_oman I'm sure that's what it said. I'm also sure all those scores are mistakes, since we are not numbers. :-)

@Ednever @realjohngatto Different point. When it's used a priori to sort kids into castes, it's wrong.

Woops, bad link: j.mp/iqzcrk is the correct link to my Quora answer to an IQ question. Again with a HT to @realjohngatto
