Gabe Rivera, the founder and creator of the powerful technology news aggregation site Techmeme, has published a list of the 50 "biggest" stories of 2008.  Michael Arrington, whose site TechCrunch has long lead the Techmeme list of the most popular site on the aggregation site has five of the 50 biggest stories.  The only other blogger with more than one citation is Kara Swisher of AllThingsD who had two of the year's biggest.

I interviewed the press-shy Rivera in Hollywood back in 2007.  He give an overview on how his site works.  I've reposted this interview today.
