This month Time magazine introduces us 100
most influencial people around the planet.
I have made a quick review of them and wrote a short notes.
Those I choose are the ones that I am familiar with or interested in.
Maybe you guys have your own favorite celebrity list.
You can check out Time 100 websites to choose the hero in your mind.
My favorite Time people:
One of the hardest things for actors to do is play someone who's mentally challenged.
He holds the screen, like a great silent actor.
The "kid" has grown up to be a man I'm proud to know and whom
I feel lucky to count as a collaborator.
Listen to his music, though, and you'll discover that Mayer wields sincerity like a pitchfork.
His empathetic voice and emotional fearlessness elevate songs like Your Body Is a
Wonderland and Daughters from pop ballads into more meaningful territory;
give them half a chance, and during vulnerable moments, they'll be your friends for life.
Her kind of prolonged cool takes not just hard work and great bones
but also an infallible chic-tracking system.
Beauty is not really truth. But in Moss's case, it's very, very persuasive.
When a man looks like Brad Pitt, we tend to underestimate him.
We ask him to make a blockbuster a year. Date a beautiful woman.
Have a cute baby. And we're happy.
Condoleezza Rice knows who she is and remembers where she came from.
As a child, Condi experienced personally what it is like when citizens are denied equal rights
because of the color of their skin.
But chances are that after being consigned to the shadows for the past 50 years,
Raúl yearns to be remembered for his own historic contributions.
Hu Jintao 胡錦濤
Hu's vision has been to build a "harmonious society." He aims to overcome the great
internal economic and social tensions that have been brought on in part
by China's extraordinary growth.
He's gutsy. He's smart. He's rich. He's generous. He's loyal." And he can fly a helicopter.
But perhaps the best reason he belongs in the TIME 100 is because His Honor happens to
be one of the most honorable people in or out of office.
Oprah Winfrey's own story is an inspiration because she overcame almost every obstacle that a
person might face. She is an icon to people all over the world because of her commitment
to help those who have faced similar obstacles.
Oprah understands that in Africa, women and girls have often been doubly disadvantaged.
They have had the curse of low expectations and unequal opportunities.
She is a model for all of them—and for all of us—of what one person
can do to make a difference in the lives of others.
His generosity will make a huge difference in the lives of people around the world,
and his example will be talked about for decades.
That's Warren. He's never afraid to admit what he doesn't know, and he loves to learn.
"The stranger who tells our stories when we cannot speak not only awakens our spirits and
hearts but also shows our humanity—which others want to forget—and in doing so, becomes family."
Chien-Ming Wang 王建民
57 of 100
At 8, barely off the boat from Shanghai, I found my way to the American Dream,
courtesy of my love for Jackie Robinson, the first African American to play major league baseball.
Now there's Chien-Ming Wang.
Al Gore understands the science of global warming better than anyone else in the world of politics.
Shy in personality but dashing in vision, Allen shows how a thoughtful billionaire
can make the world not just a better place but also a far more interesting one.
I can only imagine that the man falls asleep at night dreaming about what
adventure he may undertake next.
Pony's impact on the youth of today's China will be felt in tomorrow's China as the QQ
community fosters an open, trusting, creative generation.
Chad Hurley & Steve Chen
-Founder of Youtube
Shigeru Miyamoto --Funder of Wii
By making video gaming accessible and fun for people like my grandma, Shigeru Miyamoto,
54, head of the Wii design team, has opened the world I live in every day to
people who never even wanted to visit it before.
Jobs is still Jobs. He still projects a manic self-confidence in public. He still, at 54,
wears his signature jeans-and-black-turtleneck outfit. And he still has his edge: prosperity
hasn't robbed him of his disrespect for conventional wisdom, his spooky ability to see around
corners, and his feral determination to make perfect products at all costs. All in all, success becomes him.
Mike has helped Sequoia export its distinctive investment approach to China,
India and Israel. This is a big departure for the venture-capital industry and
for entrepreneurs around the world who now have a chance to work with
the few people who have been intimately involved with the formation and growth
of some of the most important technology innovators of the past 30 years—
Apple, Cisco, Oracle, Yahoo! and Google. Mike is as global as the firms he has helped launch.
