The voting is complete for Time magazine’s top 100 most influential people, and on it in the artist section are Penny Arcade founders Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik sitting at number 14.
Shigeru Miyamoto is in third place in Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people of the year award, as you can see here. Go and vote if you haven’t already. It’s a bit like putting “Jedi” as your religion on a census form, but should distract you for at least two minutes, and therefore worthwhile.
