MacTech Honors the 25 Most Influential

MacTech has announced the 2007 MacTech 25: The Mac technical community’s most influential people. With open public voting that started in March, the MacTech 25 allowed the community to recognize those who are the most influential — through their work, writing, or any other effort they may make.

If you can believe it I’m one of the honorees! I want to thank everyone who voted to honor me in the contest. My name appears alongside other huge names in the Macintosh community. Many are individuals I have not personally met but with whom I’ve interacted online, individuals whose names I recognize because of the code and articles they have written or the help they have given me and other developers.

When I began working on Journler some two years ago I never expected the project to take on such dimensions. The program and the community that has developed around it have grown enormously. It’s incredible the interest in Journler and the enthusiasm so evident in Journler’s users. I love to see all the activity on the forums, especially users helping one another out, and to read the positive reviews and comments that appear all over the blogosphere.

Check out the article for a complete write up, which includes images of the honorees.
