An anonymous reader writes: Time Magazine's Person of the Year selects the person (man, woman, group or idea) that, "for better or worse, has most influenced events in the preceding year". Previous recipients have included Charles Lindbergh (1927), Adolf Hitler (1938), the Generation Twenty-Five and Under (1966), the Computer (1982) and the Endangered Earth (1988). The Person of the Year for 2006 is you. Time believes that you are the most influential person in 2006, by using the "Web 2.0" (i.e. Wikipedia, YouTube, MySpace) to control the media and change the world. So give yourself a round of applause and a teary acceptance speech.
