Finally, the Recognition I Deserve!

I (and to a lesser extent, millions of other people) have been named Time Magazine's Person of the Year.
"The annual honor for 2006 went to each and every one of us, as Time cited the shift from institutions to individuals - citizens of the new digital democracy, as the magazine put it. The winners this year were anyone using or creating content on the World Wide Web.
It's about damn time!

P.S. You're welcome, ingrates.

I'd like to thank the members of the Academy - oops! Wrong award!

Hey, they decide, I accept.

Honestly, this might be the crappiest "Person of the Year" ever.

They may as well have thrown up Hitler again.

It sounds like some crappy compromise members of a committee came up with while they were looking for something "edgy" and "catchy". Like they gathered up a bunch of "consultants" like the ones you see on The Simpsons, you know, there's one guy with a ponytail, and there's a woman who's always saying we need something "edgy", and there are always a couple of other brown-nosers going along with their leader. Yuck. It smacks of insincerity and marketing, right down to the mirror on the cover.

It's stupid pandering.

I'm sure the word "synergy" was thrown around the focus groups quite liberally, as well.

Way to miss a chance to have a discussion on important international events. Who wants to bet Iraqis or Pakistanis or Cubans or, say, most anyone else in the world thinks that US bloggers have had the most influence on the world.

It's just stupid. Way to go, Time.
