I third the nomination LB, Sage and Ciara- they run my favorite distros and they all have really cool zines - overall, awesome kids!
As for my own...I really enjoy what Sinoun does! She has breathtaking zines and came up with thetradingnetwork.org woohoo!

Eeveryone above, thanks for making zines an integral part of the city's culture and history.
And YAY for Multnomah County Library, where I work, which has a circulating zine collection, features (and pays) Zinesters Talking, and puts out a list of PDX Zine locations. http://www.multcolib.org/books/zines/
Currently, these folks, Sonya Green (Library Thing), Clinton Watson (Salt Lake City Public Library), Milo Miller (QZAP), Jerianne Thompson (Linebaugh Public Library, Zine World, ZineWiki), and Jenna Freedman (Barnard College Library/zine librarian guru). They all gave the attendees at the Seattle Zine Librarian Unconference great hope of cooperation and a positive future in zinesters working together towards an open source universal cataloging system that will someday make zines a lot easier add to public libraries and infoshops and make available as a valuable resource:
