Vanity Fair released its list of the top 100 Information Age power players Tuesday and unsurprisingly, Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein is on top. "Blankfein's grip on power at his own firm has only gotten tighter," according to the magazine. Apple CEO Steve Jobs is the runner-up, followed by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffett, and Google founders Larry Page, Sergey Brin, and CEO Eric Schmidt. The highest ranking woman on the list of the "New Establishment" is Angelina Jolie, who is jointly listed with Brad Pitt at number eight. Vanity Fair has said that the ranking is based "wealth, influence, and philanthropy, as well as such intangibles as vision and the X factor."
