Submission + - Wisdom of Crowds Forgets "Pong" From Top 1

An anonymous reader writes: This list, built out with the help of Slashdotters and numerous others, is much closer now to being a definitive list of the top 150 contributors of all time to the nexus of technologies that first spawned the Internet, and since have helped maintain and expand it. The list was previously discussed on Slashdot in a shorter, earlier version/ Despite the wisdom of crowds, it still doesn't yet include Paul Allen or Seymour Cray, nor Zimmerman (PGP), Tomlinson (@), or Bushnell (Pong).

It is masked but always present. I don't know who built to it. It came before the first kernel.
