Mirror, mirror on the wall who is the most influential IT person of all – Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg?

According to Forbes Magazine’s annual list of the most powerful people in the world, the winner is Gates, thanks to the philanthropic work he’s been doing which it called “the most productive midlife crisis in history.”

In fact, the list names Gates as the fifth most powerful person in the world, behind President Barack Obama, Russian PM Vladimir Putin, Chinese President Hu Jintao and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

As for Zuckerberg, he’s further down the list at number 9, edging out British PM David Cameron. Zuckerberg is the youngest person on the list and is far younger than the rest of the top 10, by at least a couple of decades.

Other techies in the list are Google’s co-founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, together at No. 30, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos at 40 and Apple CEO Tim Cook at 58.
