Every year, the US TIME magazine will publish a year-end issue with a cover story of "Person of the Year." Those who have been chosen as the person of the year are the one who most affected the news and our lives, for good or for ill, throughout the year. As for this year, the magazine is due to be released on December 25th, but the person of the year for TIME magazine has already been named and it is "YOU." Yes, you and me and everyone we know (not to be confused with the name of a movie I used to write a review earlier) are the person of the year. TIME stated that we all, the Internet users around the globe, were the driving force behind today’s Internet technology where personal media such as blogs and videos could make things matter via various social networks. Websites such as YouTube, MySpace and Wikipedia provided various tools for users to interact with the world.
How do you feel? Aren’t you honored to be selected as person of the year? At least, it seems that our tiny voices added up and had been heard.
Person of the Year: You. Yes, you. You control the Information Age. Welcome to your world.
