Time 100 - 2011|
Time lists what they consider "the most influential people in the world. They are artists and activists, reformers and researchers, heads of state and captains of industry. Their ideas spark dialogue and dissent and sometimes even revolution."
The range from Wael Ghonim, who's plaintive posts on Facebook helped spark the Egyptian revolution, Katsunobu Sakurai who denounced the lethargy of Japanese authorities in helping earthquake victims and Hu Shuli who shook up China's media landscape with courageous investigative pieces on corruption and fraud to world leaders like Barack Obama and China's Xi Jinping.
From musician Sting to neuroscientist, V.S. Ramachandran.
From Taiwan's Buddhist Dharma Master Cheng Yen, head of the Tzu Chi Foundation (tzu chi means compassionate relief), which is known for the astonishing speed and efficiency with which it brings aid to victims of natural disasters, to Christian pastor, Rob Bell, who's book Love Wins: A Book About Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived, was on the best seller list.
