Time magazine named ‘You’ as its Person Of The Year, with a lovely cover designed to reflect the importance of - the rise of citizen journalism, blogging user-generated Internet content as a driving force in the modern world. You," in this case, refers to people who create content to put on the World Wide Web - so it may actually not be you, personally. User-generated content on websites such as YouTube has proved the latest twist in the Internet revolution, with the site attracting millions of users and earning its founders $1.65 billion when it was bought by Google earlier this year. The citation for the awards says, “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”. The editors write that they chose to put a mirror on the cover because it literally reflects the idea that you, not them, are transforming the information age.
