This past week, TIME Magazine named "you" -- the one of many millions of web users -- the person of the year. TIME's current cover story
explains why the story of 2006 wasn't one shaped by a "great man," as
it usually is, but by a community of web users "on a scale never seen
before." It's a story, TIME says, "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."
If these grand declarations happen to move you, or if you're looking
for some more elaboration on how TIME gave you this honor, you can
always listen to TIME's latest piece on iTunes which features a roundtable discussion of their annual edition.
