TIME'S PEOPLE OF THE YEAR: BLOGGERS

Time_citizenjournalists

I can get behind this in a big way. And if you contribute $25 or more to the Blogumentary Debt Relief Fund, you'll receive a handmade DVD of the very entertaining and informative documentary about the People of the Year! Find out why the Star Tribune called Blogumentary "slick and well-researched". And then, maybe you can tell me.

Each year around this time going all the way back to 1927 the editors of TIME magazine sit down to debate and select their Person or People of the Year. Last year, if you recall, they selected the American soldier. In prior years they have selected everyone from Charles Lindbergh (1927) to The Computer (1982), Andy Grove (1997), Jeff Bezos (1999), George W. Bush (2000), Rudy Giuliani (2001), the Whistle Blowers (2002) and many more luminaries.

The Person of the Year is defined as folllows:

"Person of the Year is an annual issue of TIME magazine that features a profile on the man, woman, couple, group, idea, place, or machine that "for better or worse, has most influenced events in the preceding year"

For 2004, I cannot think of a single person or persons that had a greater influence on society than the bloggers. Let's remind them by making our voice heard. If you think about American politics, media, business - no one, no one had a greater influence for better or worse than the bloggers. Not Osama Bin Laden. Not Sadaam Hussein. Not John Kerry. No one. The bloggers absolutely deserve to be this year's People of the Year.

It makes me feel proud to be blogging. I'm sure other bloggers do or will too.
