My stream of consciousness "blink" :-) proposal: Nobody who has ever spoken at a blog conference, organized a blog conference or been a speaker in a panel at a blogging conference should be eligible for the top 20 :-) ! That disqualifies me and lots of other people but it leaves the room open to lots of other new voices!
Roland, I hear you loud and clear on this, and we are taking al of this feedback into srious account. What's your alternative proposal? Me not a blogger? It's been always a label placed on me by others and I do stand by what I said. But would that prohibit me from having ideas and carrying them forward?
