The Time 100

Today Time magazine unveiled their latest edition of The Time 100 – their list of the 100 most influential people in the world right now. The list is divided into five categories: Titans, Leaders, Artists, Pioneers, and Icons. I guess they’re all supposed to be equal, but “Icons” seems like a step above the rest, doesn’t it?

The list includes a wide variety of individuals, including famous ones like Jay-Z, Barack Obama, and Lena Dunham, as well as more niche figures like “chess wunderkind” Magnus Carlsen, all of whom receive gushy write-ups from other figures of equally impressive statures.

You can check out the whole list on Time‘s website here. And be sure to call your mother if you made the list this year, as it can be easy to miss a single name if you aren’t looking for it.
