A little while ago, TIME Magazine unveiled the 100 people who shaped our world in 2006. The list includes musicians, politicians, comedians, writers, movie stars, entertainers and so on. This year’s list has 71 men and 29 women from 27 different countries. But guess what, the most influential Mr. Bush who was once the TIME’s person of the year didn’t make it in the the 100s even this year. Pity on him. However, to me it felt like Americanos who shaped our politics, movies and entertainment this year. Most of them does’t seem to me as influential people. Rather Zimbabwe’s Mugabe looks more influential than many of the listed ones.

Some of them who got into the TIME 100 of 2006 are Oprah Winfrey, George Clooney, Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat), Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Justin Timberlake, Pope Benedict XVI, Cate Blanchett, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Simon Fuller, John Mayer, Michael J Fox, Angela Merkel (German Chancellor), Kate Moss, Raul Castro (Cuba’s acting president), Queen Elizabeth II, Condoleezza Rice, Sonia Gandhi, Hillary Clinton, Hu Jintao, King Abdullah, Barack Obama, Osama bin Laden, Roger Federer, Thierry Henry, Al Gore, Chris Anderson, Richard Branson, Chad Hurley & Steve Chen (YouTube founders), Katsuaki Watanabe, Lakshmi Mittal, Steve Jobs, Philip Rosedale (Seond life cyperspace), Indra Nooyi (Pepsico’s CEO), an many many more. Gosh… I am so lame to write the whole list. If you feel interested, read all the 100 profiles in TIME’s website.
