Mark Zuckerberg, Larry Page and Julian Assange are among the tech names featured on Time’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world.

The list, which was released on Thursday, also includes a number of people whose use of technology propelled them into the spotlight, including key Egyptian revolution figure Wael Ghonim, Newark Mayor Cory Booker and the ever-present Justin Bieber.

Zuckerberg’s inclusion on the list should come as no surprise given he was named Time’s “Person of the Year for 2010,” a distinction that many thought would go to Assange, who is the founder of WikiLeaks. In returning to the role of CEO at Google, Page also became all the more significant, with his collegiate graduate adviser writing in Time that he expects Page “to pursue things that seem unreasonable and unreachable — until the very moment they become a reality.”

Elsewhere, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings made the list, with (the now very partial) Kevin Spacey writing that Hastings has “changed how the entertainment business reaches its audience and how that audience is able to access content.”

Angry Birds developer Peter Vesterbacka and Charle Chao, developer of “China’s Twitter” — Sina Weibo — round out the tech influentials selected by Time.
