Quickie: Gabe and Tycho in the Time 100

I’m still on my way home, so I apologize for literally phoning this post in. You just have to love technology. Anyway, sitting here in the car and browsing Kotaku I stubled upon an interesting tidbit of news: the creators of Penny Arcade have been voted into Time Magazine’s top 100 most influential people of the world.

Whatever you may think of Penny Arcade, it’s great to see that something born from video games can become this popular. Even better that we see some big names from the internet community honored this way, opposed to, say, the creators of Modern Warfare 2 or someone similar. This isn’t the crowd of pure console gamers with their shooters and sports games that voted Gabe and Tycho into the top 100 – we are talking about actual, internet savvy, community interested gamers. Mainstream here we come 😉
