And the Man of the Year Is.....


Well, you to, but this is the closest I'll ever be to being Man of the Year (on many levels), so I'm going to enjoy it for a moment.

Yes, Time magazine named the contributors to Web 2.0 as Man of the Year for the way the web is shaping the world and how we communicate. It's an interesting thought. Blogs, wikis, utube, facebook, etc are all a part of our daily lives and have huge influence on how business works these days.

I really liked this quote from 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. Some of the comments on YouTube make you weep for the future of humanity just for the spelling alone, never mind the obscenity and the naked hatred.

The web has it's ups and downs, but I have really enjoyed keeping a blog, staying in touch with friends via facebook and posting my pictures at smugmug.

Turns out people really can change the world, for better or worse.
