This year’s 100 Most Creative People offers our own, idiosyncratic perspective on business. The selections reflect the breadth of news ideas and new pursuits at play in our business landscape. From interface designer Yugo Nakamura to HBO Documentary Films president Sheila Nevins to futurist Ray Kurzweil, we can attest that creativity is alive and well in 2010.

Lady Gaga #1?  Don’t get me wrong, I love what she does, but she has a whole posse now that puts together her look and gets her exposure.  I don’t think there is anyone else on the list with that kind of entourage.

Some of my favs are #37 Jamie Oliver-Chef/TV Star and #97 Michael Williams-Blogger.

Who are some of your standouts?

  1. 54. Mark Fuller, WET design. His firm designs some awe-inspiring water features.

    62. Ray Kurzweil, Inventor and Futurist, I don’t think that he understands the difference between science-fiction and science-fact. Which is totally awesome.

    Also, I’m surprised you didn’t mention Bjarke Ingels as a favorite.
