Reputation Quotient review Person of the Year for 2006 - YOU!

person of the year 2006Time magazine has come to the conclusion that You are the Person of the Year for 2006! Not just any of you out there, but you that have contributed or played a role in the user generated content of the World Wide Web. It's for the millions of people that have used community websites like, You Tube, Wikipedia, internet forums, and other Web 2.0 sites. For the people that are taking the power from the few and giving it to the many by producing their own content on the web!

Lev Grossman of Time Magazine says you are the Person of the Year for "Seizing the reins of the global media, for founding and framing the new digital democracy, for working for nothing and beating the pros at their own game, Time's Person of the Year for 2006 is you."

Last year the cover of the Person of the Year issue of the Time magazine would have been graced with the super powerful and famous (U2's Bono, Bill Gates and Melinda Gates). This year the cover of the Person of the Year issue has a keyboard and a PC monitor with a mirror in it, showing you, the reflection of the person that is changing the world and how we view it.

Up until recently we have been given our news and information from a few very powerful media moguls and press barons, but with the new version of the Internet that has been labeled Web 2.0, millions of people around the world are finding their own voice. The powerful few are no longer all that matters, as the many are now finding their own power in the new Internet revolution.

"Journalists once had the exclusive province of taking people to places they'd never been. But now a mother in Baghdad with a videophone can let you see a roadside bombing or a patron in a nightclub can show you a racist rant by a famous comedian." Lev Grossman

People are sharing information and news online like never before. We can now learn about products we plan to purchase, read reviews, find the best prices, and learn how giant corporations like Wal-Mart are treating us and the planet. Bloggers are exposing unethical businesses and big businesses are now changing their backward ways. Giants like McDonald's are even publishing their own blog to trumpet their message of corporate social responsibility in the face of criticism online.

"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." Lev Grossman

So, take a bow and pat yourself on the back if you have contributed content to the web in 2006 as you are the Person of the Year.. bravo!
