WordPress is an army

Brian Krogsgard wrote a small rant on why we shouldn't write or care about “top” lists of folks in the WordPress community.

A very good article and a truth that had to be reminded.

I can see the rationale of having a list of "interesting" WordPress-related people, but having a "top" list is a bit ridiculous. As the author says, you can't possibly list everyone.

sure, the list in question was never positioned as a "top" list though. A lot of the names that weren't on the list that people are getting ruffled about are people that I, and probably many others, already follow and have on our radar. The list actually gave me new peeps to follow, and peeps that are interesting who I've not interacted with before. Syed wrote a comment on the original list that I think sums things up nicely.

I've also found some cool people to follow from lists like that over the years. Maybe it's just all semantics? Top implies these people are the most important, etc.
