Guest : Erick Schonfeld, editor-at-large of Business 2.0 magazine
Aired : Saturday June 30th, 2007
Is Steve Job the most influential person in business technology? Where do the Google Guys rank? Does Bill Gates matter anymore? How about eBay's Meg Whitman? And is Arianna Huffington really more important than Salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff? Join us as we go over Business 2.0's 50 Most Influential People in business technology with Erick Schonfeld, Business 2.0's editor-at-large. Plus we get the lowdown on www.JumpUp.com, Intuit's social networking site for entrepreneurs, from JumpUp's marketing leader Kira Wampler. Filling in for Michael Thomas in the co-host's chair this week is Lynn Do, president of Renovo Data.
As editor-at-large, Erick Schonfeld contributes to the editorial development of Business 2.0 magazine, writes feature stories, and puts out the daily B2Day blog, from New York. He covers both major corporations-including Amazon, eBay, General Electric, Google, Microsoft, IBM, and Yahoo-and startups inventing new technologies.
Prior to Time Inc.'s acquisition of Business 2.0, Schonfeld was an editor-at-large for eCompany Now and a contributing editor for Fortune, where he wrote about technology and investing over a seven year period. In 1999, Schonfeld won the prize for best information-technology submission at London's Business Journalist of the Year Awards, and in 2001 he won the prize for best space submission at the Aerospace Journalist of the Year Awards in Paris.
