Like much of the Internet, we were captivated by Alex Pareene's "Hack 30" countdown, both because we like lists (obviously) and because it was a very slow news days. Twitter (for the most part) concurred:

NYU's Jay Rosen and liberal blogger Duncan "atrios" Black looked into the future...

John Podheretz, upset over not making the list, found comfort in tweeting on his shiny iPad...
