The 2010 TIME 100 World’s Most Influential People List

TIME Magazine has just published their 100 world’s most influential people list for 2010.

Some of the people you’ll encounter on this list are influential in the traditional sense — heads of state like Barack Obama, corporate leaders like Robin Li, CEO of the Chinese search-engine company Baidu. But the magazine also sought out people whose ideas and actions are revolutionizing their fields and transforming lives — like Matt Berg, who is using text-messaging technology to improve community health monitoring in Africa, and Rahul Singh, whose organization GlobalMedic was among the first on the ground after January’s Haiti earthquake, providing millions of gallons of water to those most in need. You might not have heard their names before, but their innovations and efforts will help change the world for years to come.

The 2010 TIME 100 boasts some innovations too. The issue has multiple covers, wrapping front and back around the magazine. The list is now consolidated into four categories — leaders, artists, thinkers and heroes.
