Minecraft creator Markus ‘Notch’ Persson is currently ranked as the second most-influential person in the world in this year’s Time 100 Poll. Voting is still open if you want to throw your own hat in the ring.

The poll is currently being voted for by readers and the final list will champion the world’s most iconic figures across the arts, politics, science and other walks of life.

Notch is currently placed second behind Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi, and voting ends today. The final list will be published in the magazine and online April 18.
