It’s always humbling when an expert asks for your advice. And David Rowan is certainly an expert when it comes to the greatest innovators of our age. Few can match his intimate knowledge of the brilliant, often hair-brained schemes being hatched around the world by super-creatives intent on revolutionising our lives.

Yet ask for my help he did. Well, actually, that’s not technically true. It’s possible I’m guilty of some self-aggrandisement there, because in fact David has asked for all our help in compiling the 2nd annual WIRED 100. He wants our opinon on the most influential designers, innovators, investors, entrepreneurs and creatives with the power to touch the rest of our lives. His only rules are that they have to have a strong UK connection, and it is their influence today that us being measured, rather than historically.

You can join the fun here and see 2011’s top 100 here.

We’re looking forward to having David speak at Chartwell’s Breakfast Club on Friday June 15th at the RAC on Pall Mall.
