Late Thursday, the popular American news blog site Huffington Post announced the "Ultimate 12 Game Changers" from around the world chosen by the site's readers with over three million votes tallied with Israeli-American Shai Reshef coming in the twelfth spot.

The poll began in September 2010,  with 100 innovators, visionaries and leaders chosen by the website as people "who change[d] the way we look at the world and the way we live in it." 

Reshef was honored in the 12th spot for "taking the world to school" by creating in 2009 the "University of the People" a site based in Pasadena, California that streams lectures and class assignments to people around the world to provide them the opportunity to take college-level classes on the web for less than $100 and, ultimately, earn an accredited degree. Reshef's site currently has 500 students from 100 countries meeting and discussing topics on the site's online forums, according to Huffington Post.
