Forbes Announces The Web Celeb Top 25

FORBES announced this week how the face of fame is changing – thanks to the Internet and self-publishing capabilities.

"The ranks of the world’s celebrities used to be dominated by millionaire actors, athletes and musicians, but the Internet has leveled the playing field. A kid with a video camera has access to as large an audience as the biggest Hollywood star. A mom with a blog can attract more readers than a best-selling author. And an opinionated entrepreneur can become a guru to millions."

The Forbes.com Web Celeb 25 is a list of the biggest, brightest and most influential people on the Internet.  From bloggers to podcasters to YouTube stars, these are the people who are creating the digital world from the bottom up, according to Forbes.com.
