Doesn't the whole silly idea of an "open media 100" pretty much illustrate that folks who think in terms of insider clubs and short lists of influential people don't seem to really understand what is fundamentally important about a read/write web and the new age of the amateur.
Could we please have the "long tail" meme back? Open media, whatever it is, will not be a hits business. This idea of paying extra notice to a small clique of A lister friends is a waste of all of our attention.
Anyone who plays this game pretty much declares which side they are on.
