Time Magazine's Person of the Year is...


...YOU (and me)!

We won this because we make up a community that collaborates on a scale never seen before, a community where all our contributions matter and make us matter.
We won this because we've put together the cosmic compendium of knowledge that is Wikipedia, the million-channel people's network that is YouTube, the gigantic online metropolis that is MySpace , the colossal photo album that is Flickr and the blogosphere.
We won this because there's millions of us and we are taking away power from the few and helping one another for nothing.
We won this because not only are we are changing the world, we are also changing the way the world changes.
PS - As somebody on the BBC Forum said, "This is going to look great on my CV!"

So, it really is all about me. I mean, us.

Contrary to what appears on TV and newspapers, we have won this because there's more kindness and compassion today. Immediate response at an individual level
after tsunami struck is an example we will never forget.
