Fortune names their 50 smartest people in tech

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, Internet, Microsoft, Misc. Tech

Steve JobsFortune has gone all tech on us this week, compiling a list of who they think are the fifty smartest people in tech. We found it interesting because most lists focus on the richest CEOs, or straight up performance on the job rather than things like intelligence, and the vision and impact they have on the tech world. The way they did it was to break the list down into ten categories (smartest CEO, smartest founder, etc.) and then list five names in each, listing a top choice for each category in the process. Here’s a peek at what they came up with:

  • Smartest CEO: Steve Jobs, CEO, Apple
  • Smartest Founder: Mark Zuckerberg, CEO, Facebook
  • Smartest Designer: Jonathan Ive, Senior VP of Industrial Design, Apple
  • Smartest Academic: Danah Boyd, Social Media Researcher, Microsoft Research

Hi the read link below to head to Fortune for the full list.
