Default RS: Top 100 People That Are Changing America.

Please Login to Remove!

The RS 100: Agents of Change : Rolling Stone

I posted the list of names, if you click their name it will take you to the article discussing what Rolling Stone claims they're changing.

Your thoughts?

Leans way too heavily toward pop culture, but I suppose that's what one should expect from RS.

For example, if I were to make a list of 100 people who are changing America... I am not immediately certain who would be on it, but it would not include Taylor Swift. (WTF.)

That's a curious list. Lil Wayne next to Al Gore? The Arcade Fire next to Bill Gates? Really, RS?

Also, some of the links are messed up. I tried to click on Andy Samberg and Sacha Baron Cohen because I wondered what exactly they were changing and I was redirected to totally different people not even close to the numbers I clicked.

They have 3 to 4 persons listed on each page... If you click a persons name, you may have to scroll down to see them...

I agree, very interesting list...

Some pages have multiple people on the same page, I believe the link takes you to the beginning of that page and you need to scroll to the actual person you're looking for.

Ah, serves me right for glancing at the pages too quickly. The first one I clicked on had the person at the top of the page, so I'd assumed there was one page for each person. Never mind then!

Is RS still considered to be a significant reporter of American culture? Seems like their profile has diminished over the years, but that may be because I'm old and out of touch.

I agree with this comment by tentacle.
