While the average person doesn't have a clue who these people are, those within the SEO circles sure do.
They travel from San Jose to NYC, Chicago ... drawing (large) crowds at shows that pay big money to line up and see them and admire them.
Actually, I agree with the point the author was making. Too many of us are idolizing the wrong people. Our priorities are all screwed up. We should be idolizing our nurses and teachers, not SEO's.
That being said, it doesn't matter to me one way or the other. I'm not into hero-worship.
