According to this tidbit on wwd.com, yes, you, or better stated, the collective “we” might be Time’s 2006 Person of the Year. That sounds about right. Think about the combined influence of blogs, YouTube, wiki’s, etc., and how they’re not just changing the media landscape but rapidly becoming everyday tools and solutions.
These technologies weren’t invented in 2006, but it’s hard to argue their importance and how it has surged throughout the year. Thanks to each of these tools, anyone can easily create their own platform, communicate their message and share it all with the rest of the community. Just ask anyone who owns stock in one of the publicly traded newspapers and see what they think of the citizen media model. It’s changing the world and it’s here to stay.
