It is clear that the world would not be what it is, if it were not for these characters. Larry Page and Sergey Brin are the founders of computer mammoth called Google. Google is probably the largest Internet company, used for important moment, something that probably will not change at least for a while.
- Shawn Fanning
Shawn Fanning is one of my favorite characters Internet. Before the Internet was fast and Internet was simple, this man gave life to piracy and the music world. Thanks to its network Napster. Napster allowed peer-to-peer sharing all our songs the illegal way possible through its network.
- Jimmy Wales
I wonder what would my education be without the help of this master of educational life and founder of Wikipedia. The democratization of information and the possibility that everyone has access to a universal library, also universal creation is only a thanks to his idea and his strength to carry the Wikipedia project forward.
- Chad Hurley and Steve Chen
2005 was a crucial year for internet and multimedia world since Chad Hurley & Steve Chen began to give life to what we know today as YouTube the largest video social network Earth. After almost two years of work it achieved an amazing popularity and these two boys became very rich after selling his company to Google for $ 1.65 billion.
- Niklas Zennstrom & Janus Friis
At one point it was very strange, almost incomprehensible, how could travel much information online but could not make communication style telephone call through it. Niklas Zennstrom & Janus Friis gave life to this idea with the creation of Skype.
This communication system for internet video call and has over 300 million users and portability of mobile phones surely make that phone companies disappear because they cannot compete against Skype and its free service.
- Bill Gates
Bill Gates is the second richest man on earth, and this is not achieved repairing laptops. Bill Gates as we all know is the founder of Microsoft the company that dominated the world of operating systems worldwide in the early days of personal computing.
Today Microsoft has many more enemies and potential rivals that initially, however has managed to keep fighting renovating and expanding their empire into video games and mobile.
- Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs is probably one of the most representative figures of the technology revolution because it took that square, boring and dull computer world to nice, delicate and flexible world.
Steve Jobs is the co-founder of Apple and an almost religious figure for those who have understood their innovative and creative mind. In addition to collaborating with the world of computing it is considered a superb entrepreneur and inventor with futuristic mind.
- Mark Zuckerberg
Facebook, Facebook and Facebook. What would my social life be if it were not for this man, yes obviously be more social. However, thanks to the social network that has enabled to meet people from all over the world and reconnect with many people who had never found again, something that maybe has happened to us, all users of Facebook.
Mark Zuckerberg is one of the four co-founders of the most used social network on the planet and one of the most representative figures of the world of technology. Moreover, he is the youngest of the list of billionaires’ magazine Forves character.
- Jeff Bezos
Jeff Bezos is the founder of Amazon ‘s best – known and reliable online store in the world. Bezos started his company in 1995 and grew slowly today puts the company in a value close to 20 billion dollars.
Amazon began selling books and systematically expanded only contact with the world and the products sold there. Today competes with eBay and other online stores but surely none able to generate such a unique concept as it has achieved Amazon.
- Kim Dotcom
Contemplating the panorama of recent years and the struggle for internet person like Kim Dotcom cannot be left out of the list of the 10 most important people in technology world.
Kim Dotcom Mega upload was the founder of the online storage service most used Internet. Today the site no longer exists for legal issues; however, Dotcom largely managed to win judgments against him and seems to return to the courts with some interesting ideas.
