The power of You
The announcement of Time magazine’s Person (nee Man) Of The Year is always guaranteed to generate a bit of buzz and conversation.
Some of the biggest names of the 20th century have scored Time’s most important cover, including Bill’s Gates and Clinton, Lech Walesa, Anwar Sadat, JFK, Martin Luther King, Winston Churchill and Stalin.
This year Time has named You as the Person Of The Year. Yes You!
Tipping the hat to the community building, information sharing, video uploading power of the worldwide web, Time sees 2006 as the year the digital revolution empowered everyone with the ability to connect to it.
It’s not the first time they’ve done something like this either. They named The Computer as Person Of The Year back in 1982, two years before the launch of the Macintosh.
