Dr. Wesch Wins Rave Award!Online Extrasfeature: Behind the Scenes with Heroes Creator Tim Kring and Hiro himself, Masi Oka To find the 22 innovators, instigators, and inventors to honor with a Rave Award this year, we started by looking for the most intriguing breakthroughs in the world today — then tracked down the individuals who made them happen. Each honoree told a unique story, but they tended to have one thing in common: Before changing the game in technology, business, or culture, they first changed themselves. There's the actor who became a politician (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and the politician who became an entrepreneur (Arianna Huffington), not to mention an entrepreneur turned philanthropist (Paul Allen) and a philanthropist turned open source warrior (Mark Shuttleworth). The lesson seems obvious: Reinvent yourself, reinvent the world.The Winners Television: The CreatorTim Kring | Heroes Education: The Detective Henry Louis Gates Jr. | Ancestry-Based Curriculum Business: The MogulJ.
