The Digital Age is an extraordinary time.

It has been a time of great technical innovation.  

While many people have helped in the digital innovation, a select few have made the most impact.

Maybe you have heard about the Industrial Age Innovators?  Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford, John D. Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan and Cornellius Vanderbilt.

Here are my pick for the top five innovators in the Digital Age:

Steve Jobs

The founder of Apple and the Father of the smartphone, Steve Jobs was always out in front of the digital tech race.  

Larry Page/Sergey Brin(Founders of Google)

Without Larry Page and Sergey Brin, we wouldn't  have the phrase "GTS",(Google That Sh*@T), or be able to respond with, "I don't know, just Google it."

The internet lives on Google.

Elon Musk

Elon wants to simply change the world and humnanity.  So far he has done that.  Elon's entrepreneurial genius helped start widely known companies,  PayPal, Tesla, and SpaceX.

Jeff Bezos

The founder and CEO of the online giant, Amazon, Jeff Bezos has built a digital empire.  

Mark Zuckerberg

Starting in a Harvard dorm room, Mark Zuckerberg started Facebook, which changed the internet forever.  Facebook has formed a tight online community and a digital escape.   Facebook also started a social media revolution, with Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, Twitter, and Reddit starting after.

Who are your top Digital Age Innovators?

Could you imagine a world without a smartphone or Google?
