Larry Page has leap-frogged fellow Google co-founder Sergey Brin in the latest edition of Forbes’ billionaires list. Page, who is also Google CEO, is estimated to be worth $23 billion, placing him at No. 20 in Forbes’ ranking, and just ahead of 21st place Brin, who is worth $22.8 billion. (Google’s Eric Schmidt ranges 138th, worth $8.2 billion.)
In other media-industry mogul movements, most experienced some downward momentum on the list, including relative newcomer Mark Zuckerberg, who has fallen to No. 66 with a worth of $13.3 billion, AOL founder Steve Case (down to 1,031st place with $1.4 billion), and GroupOn’s Erik Lefkofsky (down to 1,268th with $1.1 billion).
Rookie Jack Dorsey, creator of Twitter and founder-CEO of Foursquare, enters the list at 1,268th place with $1.1 billion.
