The Top 100 – Melbourne

We’ve just received the morning paper and would like to congratulate a few people who have made it into The (melbourne) magazine’s Top 100 list in The Age.

The list is now in it’s fifth year and recognises individuals who have made a difference to the city (in numerous ways) during the year. It’s decided by a panel of commentators and is divided into different sections… Provocateurs, Global Sensations, Power Partnerships, Social Glue, Changing Lives (and more) and extends across a range of industries.

Congratulations to the following people, who have been part of desktop over the past year in some way or another:

Raph Rashid – entrepreneur
