Default YOU are Time's Person of the Year

Time's Person of the Year, while not the defining event it was in the past, still strikes me as an interesting symbol of looking through a year full of leaders and shakers.

This year's choice will be no exception. From the article on Time's website...

Quote:
Who are these people? Seriously, who actually sits down after a long day at work and says, I'm not going to watch Lost tonight. I'm going to turn on my computer and make a movie starring my pet iguana? I'm going to mash up 50 Cent's vocals with Queen's instrumentals? I'm going to blog about my state of mind or the state of the nation or the steak-frites at the new bistro down the street? Who has that time and that energy and that passion?

The answer is, you do. And for seizing the reins of the global media, for founding and framing the new digital democracy, for working for nothing and beating the pros at their own game, TIME's Person of the Year for 2006 is you.
I really like this choice. It is amazing this year how the web has redefined itself as a vehicle for you, for me, for anybody to see the world as it happens; to share what is on your own mind and find others who are both with or against them; and to raise a voice for the wrongs we all see. Everybody is talking, and everybody is listening. Who knows where that can truly go?

Wow, didn't expect them to do this. Congrats to all of us!

This site is really a great example, no one gets paid to post, we do it to inform and learn. It is "you" who makes Backstage, and it is "you" who makes the entire web what it is.

Wow! This was unexpected, I didn't even prepare a speech...



This was our competition for the award:
"You beat candidates including Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, China's President Hu Jintao, North Korean leader Kim Jong-il and James Baker, the former US Secretary of State who led Washington's bipartisan Iraq Study Group."

The question is...do "you" think "you" deserve this prestigious award?

Well it's about damn time I got some recognition for my many achievements in excellence!

Surprised they didn't go with a holofoil/reflective type cover where you see a reflection of yourself on the cover...reminiscent of the old 'Man of the Year' (before they went PC) mirrors:

Well, they can't show it on the internet site (how do you get a perfectly reflective surface on an internet site?), but the cover on stand tomorrow is a piece of reflective mylar, so you will see yourself.

I would like to think all of the little people that helped me win this worthless reward...... , unless Time is sending all of us some cash then I would like to thank them.

Time Magazine had an entire year to come up with something... and this is the best that they can do.

yep, get lazy and just give everyone the award instead of making a decision. Doesn't really matter, Time is pretty much inconsequential anyway these days.
