Default Notch and Jens make the TIME top 100

Notch and Jens have both made Time mags top 100 list of most influential people.

This year the list has been split into categories, with our heroes classed as 'Titans'.

Jay Z | TIME 100: The 100 Most Influential People in the World | TIME.com

Notch was a clear favorite to win the number 1 spot, with a massive number of votes 'For', and very few 'Against', the nomination, but TIME likely decided to whimp out and make 'everyone a winner' this year.

Well deserved ...

The list by categories is at Full List | TIME 100: The 100 Most Influential People in the World | TIME.com

Notch doesn't think he has really done enough to be on the list But interestingly, Julia Gillard got voted out, but Gina Rinehart was in as a Titan.

ROFL Time are such chickens, the same thing happened with the year of the protesters edition,

I am surprised they put some people on that list, but even so, Notch is the face of minecraft even since he is nolonger active with it.

Seems like there should have been more descriptive categories to me. I mean, what is a Titan? It almost seems like a popularity poll, rather than a reflection of the most influential people (whatever that means) in many respects.

I believe when the original poll was made there were no categories. The simply took the final top 100 and stuck them into the categories afterwards. Therefore, the categories are simply for their convenience of presentation.
