Each year, we profile the most influential people, innovative products and disruptive Internet companies that have shaped the Internet landscape. In 2012, we invited TechLoy readers and the public to nominate their favourite technology people, products and companies that have excelled in their respective industries.
We received an overwhelming response of over 60 individual nominees and then selected those we felt were the most influential of them all based on each individual’s work, how they impacted on the ecosystem, their followership/fan base and how often each of them appeared in the news.
