Google’s Larry Page, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg Make 2011 TIME 100 List

time100coverTwo of the biggest names in search are on the 2011 TIME 100 — the magazine’s choices for the most influential people in the world: Google CEO Larry Page and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

In the short Zuckerberg essay, April Capone – the mayor of East Haven, Conn., tells the story of how she donated a kidney to one of her constituents who had put out a call for donors on Facebook.

The Page profile has Stanford computer science professor Terry Winograd remembering what it was like to have both Google co-founders (Page and Sergey Brin) in class.

At the top of the TIME list is Wael Ghonim, the Google executive that became one of the primary faces of the recent Egyptian revolution. Actually, he’s now a former Google executive; as AllThingsD reports, Ghonim announced on Twitter over the weekend that he’s taking a “long-term sabbatical” from Google to form a tech-focused NGO that will fight poverty and improve education in Egypt.
