Yeah! I'm the person of the year!

And so are all of you!

In the upcoming issue of Time, they announce that this year's "Person of the Year" is "You".

An extract from Time's cover story:

Web 2.0 is a massive social experiment, and like any experiment worth trying, it could fail. There's no road map for how an organism that's not a bacterium lives and works together on this planet in numbers in excess of 6 billion. But 2006 gave us some ideas. This is an opportunity to build a new kind of international understanding, not politician to politician, great man to great man, but citizen to citizen, person to person. It's a chance for people to look at a computer screen and really, genuinely wonder who's out there looking back at them.

(read the whole story here - I really like it!)
