The media industry argues over who’s up, down and out of  The Guardian‘s annual MediaGuardian 100 list of movers and shakers. As ever, music makes a showing, although the top spot in this year’s list is taken by ‘You’ to reflect “the extent to which the individual had become empowered in the online age”. Music figures making the list include Simon Cowell (14), Spotify’s Daniel Ek (45), Universal’s David Joseph (46), David Bowie (98) and Songkick’s Ian Hogarth (99) – the latter sandwiched neatly if somewhat surreally between Bowie and Lord Justice Leveson. Hogarth is “an influential role model for the next generation of digital entrepreneurs” according to The Guardian. The list has its quirks, including its UK focus: lashings of BBC execs, but no place for Apple’s Eddy Cue being one example.
