You Are Time Magazine's Person Of The Year 2006

In 1982, Time Magazine’s Man of the Year is the Computer but this year’s person of the year is YOU, yes! You, anyone using or creating content on the World Wide Web. You, who uses the computer to share facts, information, news, pictures, videos etc. through The Internet.

It seems that the world can’t find any great men these days. Hmmm… where have all the great men gone? This only shows that the year 2006 is the year where no individual noble man outshined the principles to become Time Magazine’s Man of The Year. Because the year 2006 is full of hatred, from Iraq’s conflicts that became bloodier to the battle between Lebanon and Israel to the war haul on Sudan. For the moment nobody created a great honor, even the two times Man of the Year winner George W. Bush didn’t complete his third time because he wasn’t able to explain the war in the Middle East.

This years Person of The Year are YouTube contributors, MySpace users, The Blogger’s, and all sorts of things in the World Wide Web (The Internet). With Internet you can reach out around the world even if you are just only in the comfort of your room. You can share News and information to the whole wide world with just a click of the mouse, you can donate to Hurricane Katrina and Albay’s landslide victims online.

Last year's winners were Bill and Melinda Gates and rock star Bono, who were cited for their charitable work and activism aimed at reducing global poverty and improving world health.

Who will be next year? Will it be the Cellular Phones? Your MP3 Players, or will it be Manny Pacqiauo?
