Time’s magazine has elected YOU as person of the year.
‘…for seizing the reins of the global media, for founding and framing the new digital democracy, for working for nothing and beating the pros at their own game, TIME’s Person of the Year for 2006 is you’, says the magazine.
This quiet Web 2.0 revolution (see What Is Web 2.0, an explanation by Tim O’Reilly who is said to have coined the term) is clearly changing the face of the world. Social networking is absolutely fab! Of course, as says the article, ‘Sure, it’s a mistake to romanticize all this any more than is strictly necessary. Web 2.0 harnesses the stupidity of crowds as well as its wisdom.’
