The top 25 movers and shakers in the Spanish IT industry

Around this time of year, the Spanish paper El Mundo publishes a list of the 500 most powerful people in Spain.

From this list, various commentators have produced a list of the 25 most influential people in Spanish technology today. This list contains journalists and freedom on the net campaigners, as well as entrepreneurs and start-up leaders.

Although it's by no means exclusive (for example it fails to include Didac Lee or Rodolfo Carpintier), it's still an impressive list, and many of these deserve following - where they have an open Twitter account - not always the case.

I hope the list below will prove of interest to anyone interested in the entrepreneurial scene in Spain.
