Not surprisingly, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg lands in the top spot of the magazine's movers and shakers, followed by Apple's Steve Jobs and the Google trio of Sergey Brin, Larry Page and Eric Schmidt. The first bona fide L.A. name to pop up is Disney's Robert Iger (14th), followed by Jeffrey Katzenberg (22nd) and Tom Hanks (25th). What's striking about this year's list is how few locals are ranked in the first 20 or 30 positions. No Geffen, no Spielberg, no Murdoch (he used to be based here). Of course, there are plenty of movie people (James Cameron is 36th, Ryan Kavanaugh 41st, Judd Apatow 68th), plus usual suspects like Arianna Huffington, Bill Gross, and Brian Grazer, but there are lots of less familiar names, such as Hulu's Jason Kilar (48) and writer/producer Seth MacFarlane (81). Oh, and there's also Nikki Finke, who ranked 93rd. Here's the list.
