wanted: famous and soon-to-be-famous people

As you will see from this note from the marketing dept, of which I post an extract below, The Economist is looking for suitably important-sounding people to appear in an upcoming marketing video. If anyone meeting the description below is reading this blog (and also reads The Economist) and would be willing to spend a few minutes talking to camera about why they like the Economist I would be most grateful if they could get in touch with me at

We are planning to do some video interviews with some of our more prominent readers and need a little help in identifying them.

We have two types of people we are trying to find:

a) top people of the ilk that have appeared on previous films - business leaders, heads of government, noteable entrepreneurs, etc; and

b) people who haven't made it yet but who are likely to do so within the next ten years.

I look forward to seeing not just what 'prominent' people read this blog (which seems entirely laudible) but also who self-selects themselves as 'prominent' (which seems to me to be less so)...

I haven't made it yet, so can you qauntify "likely"?

I'll soon be famous. Too early to reveal how, though.
