It's the Internet man. Everyone can just pile on. No one really has to think of it first, but if we're taking credit I think Martha got to it before I did. -Paul

Brilliant Headline! 3rd party credibility free for the taking. I wish I had thought of it.

Chris, I disagree. Most of the media went nuts over the headline, that TMPotY was "You". But the "You" they were talking about is us. The creators and consumers of new media. I think they recognized this as the first time in history anyone could publish their own works to the world and gain an appreciable audience. I see the media's reaction as one typical to the gate keepers of old media. They made their money by controlling access to the audience, and they see it slipping away. If I were protecting my pools and yachts I would draw attention to the headline and deliberately misinterpret the whole point of TMPofY, just like most major media did. As for TMPotY 2007 being THEM!, I don't want to see not giant ants at Balticon. They are not on the guest list. They are not allowed in. If they show up we will throw berserkers and gophers at them until they leave. Hope you'll be there to spend time with Mike & Evo too. Make sure to bring Mellissa with you. Paul

I'm sorry. Time Magazine's Person of the Year 2006: YOU! was the absolute lamest thing they could have done. I hope TMPotY 2007 will be: THEM! At least Saddam is out of the running for 2007. Other than that, great news on landing Michael & Evo.
