Person of the Year? Moi?

timemag.jpgTime magazine recently announced that the person of the year for 2006 is in fact… me! And you. And all those other bloggers, podcasters, and users of the ever expanding range of Web2.0 tools. Apparently, Time magazine thinks we are having such an impact on the world that we have been collectively recognised as “Person” of the Year. Thank you, thank you very much.

When Time produced this issue, they wanted to have a mirror on the cover to reflect back the image of the person holding it. To this end they had a supplier in Minnesota provide them with nearly 7,000,000 pieces of reflective Mylar to stick on the cover. That’s a lot of Mylar! (Ironically, the people about whom the article was written are probably more likely to read it online anyway.)

Of course, if you happen to own an iSight-enabled Mac, not only do you have obviously better taste than your Windows-toting brethren, but you can take advantage of a very neat little trick that only iSight enabled Macs can do. Head on over to Dan Woods’ blog and you can see the Time cover the way it really ought to have looked. With you on it!

Congratulations fellow bloggers!
