The first Derek-excluding list of famous people is Shift Magazine's Top 25 web personalities. I'm not on the list, but Shift devoted an entire page to me in 2000, so I'm not too jealous. The fact that Shift closed their doors, reorganized, and sold the print venture to somebody else immediately after my article appeared has nothing to do with my article, I'm sure. Anyways, Drew & Wil are really cool, and deserve to be on the list instead of me. But, hey -- Mahir made the list? He hasn't done a damn thing in YEARS. And, there was the required ritual kowtow to kottke (which actually slights him, in preference of Meg). All in all, I don't regret the people chosen to be honored in my place, so this list gets my blessing.
Secondly, I didn't make this list either. It starts with wondering why Carrottop is famous, and digresses into a list of other people who are famous for no good reason. Illuminating this in a positive light, being excluded from a list including Carrottop, Tony Danza, Urkel, and Tom Arnold may actually be a good thing for me.
