Humbled in MindTouch’s top 20 list of open-source

Posted by Channy Yun

MindTouch has developed a top 20 list of the most powerful voices in open-source, compiled using Twitter and other sources.

Most of the people on the list will be of no surprise to veterans of the open-source world. Notables include Tim O’Reilly, Chris Messina and Jonathan Schwartz. But, surprisingly I was listed in there as rank of 17th.


In fact, it doesn’t mean that I’m the 17th famous person in open source industry. This survey is more about broadcast capability and less about influence and MindTouch already published the most influential in Open Source 2009 back in October. I think the individuals in the list carry a big megaphone and spread words with regular sharing information.

As a local person, I didn’t give an impact in the global world, but my effort has focused on Korean web industry based on the sprites of open source and open web with Mozilla’s mission. I humbled to be included in this list and thank you for my subscribers of over 1,000 in Koreacrunch and over 28,000 in Channy’s Blog as well as over 4,900 Twitter followers.
