Who Is the Greatest Modern-Day Thinker?

Via a reader, Stephen J. Dubner in Freakonomics at The New York Times relays this question from a college student in a "core" (great books?) curriculum.
Once you’ve thought about what it means to be a thinker, then comes the hard part of thinking about who best fits the description.

Which includes the criteria for greatness, and maybe even for "Modern-Day".
So who are your nominees, and why?
