TIME Magazine Person of the Year Is...

YOU! Ok, so we admit this may be the slightest bit cheesy, but TIME Magazine has named you and me and all of us that spend our days, nights and afternoons creating and sharing content online as Person of the Year. In the spirit of cheesiness, I would just like to say that the community that all of you have built here on PopSugar epitomizes what TIME Magazine has so eloquently described in its upcoming Person of the Year issue. We thank you for making this community what it is today and for allowing me to introduce so many additions to the Sugar Network. Hearing your feedback in comments, blog posts and polls makes it so much fun to report on all of my favorite gossip every day. Here's more:

Car companies are running open design contests. Reuters is carrying blog postings alongside its regular news feed. Microsoft is working overtime to fend off user-created Linux. We're looking at an explosion of productivity and innovation, and it's just getting started, as millions of minds that would otherwise have drowned in obscurity get backhauled into the global intellectual economy.

Who are these people? Seriously, who actually sits down after a long day at work and says, I'm not going to watch Lost tonight. I'm going to turn on my computer and make a movie starring my pet iguana? I'm going to mash up 50 Cent's vocals with Queen's instrumentals? I'm going to blog about my state of mind or the state of the nation or the steak-frites at the new bistro down the street? Who has that time and that energy and that passion?

The answer is, you do. And 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.

If you have not had a chance to get involved with TeamSugar, now is the time!! Sign up today and join in the fun. Experience what Time Magazine is talking about now!

The times, they are a-changing. Regular people like me, who just used to get p*ssed on and had to deal with it, can now voice their stories online - pretty much any time, anywhere. I love the Sugar network, too, but there are other completely wonderful things online, too. ClubMom introduced me to Mommyblogs - which, in turn, got me to start my own. The internet gave EVERYONE a voice and we have all used it. I'm overjoyed to see that they made this decision - we are far more influential than fricken Britney or LL. WE DESERVE IT. YAY FOR US!

I think they are saying its all of us. The bloggers, the people that comment, people that make their own blogs on teamsugar, people that make YouTube videos. Basically anyone who contributes online at all.

so if im understanding this correctly, then the person of the year is actually the blogger or regular internet user?
