TIME magazine recently announced their Person Of The Year for 2006. I am proud to say that the winner was ... me!
According to TIME:
"It's a story about community and collaboration on a scale never seen before. It's about the cosmic compendium of knowledge Wikipedia and the million-channel people's network YouTube and the online metropolis MySpace. It's about the many wresting power from the few and helping one another for nothing and how that will not only change the world, but also change the way the world changes."
"The tool that makes this possible is the World Wide Web. Not the Web that Tim Berners-Lee hacked together (15 years ago, according to Wikipedia) as a way for scientists to share research. It's not even the overhyped dotcom Web of the late 1990s. The new Web is a very different thing. It's a tool for bringing together the small contributions of millions of people and making them matter. Silicon Valley consultants call it Web 2.0, as if it were a new version of some old software. But it's really a revolution."
OK - so it isn't ALL ABOUT ME (Rats! it never is). It's really all about YOU. And it has been fun working with you this year on all sorts of digital, electronic, online, and offline activities. I have sure learned a lot.
