TIME's person of the year - YOU !

TIME magazine has named "YOU" ( Yes, all of us !) as the "person of the year". As a tribute to the digital democracy ( Blogging, Youtube, Wikipedia etc) , TIME has awarded the person of the year to the millions of bloggers and others users who generate content.

TIME says, " In 2006, the World Wide Web became a tool for bringing together the small contributions of millions of people and making them matter.

Look at 2006 through a different lens and you'll see another story, one that isn't about conflict or great men. 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."
