Hope people remember that it goes to the most "newsworthy" person, not necessarily the most loved. Which is why our esteemed American president was last year's Person of the Year.

EDIT: From the site (they said it better than I can):
TIME's Person of the Year is the person or persons who most affected the news and our lives, for good or for ill, and embodied what was important about the year. Who do you think fits the bill this year?

I wish that in the Poll results Mother nature was ahead of Bono. She/it has a much more demanding job every year (or is is a career?).

Anyway, I voted for Mr. Jobs himself.

You could argue without apple would you have google? Unless you use windows (or another OS), in which case, you automatically have to vote for Steve.

2%!?

Uh, I don't understand your recap, so I guess we're even.

By the way, I looked through past covers...1982 was the computer (Machine of the Year) and 1988 was the endangered planet Earth (Planet of the Year), so I guess Mother Nature would not be unprecedented.

As much as I love Mr. Jobs, I don't think he's changed the world enough this year to get Person of the Year.
But from that list?

I suppose JK Rowling would defiantly have "changed" the world ... every year since 2000 (or whatever) until gods knows when harry potter ends.

It's a pretty medicore list, truth be told. That said, I'll be pretty upset if J.K Rowling gets Person of the Year. I don't think the world would look much different without her books.

Given that... I don't know, Karl Rove or Dick Cheny? This has pretty much been the year of the world going to hell, on many different levels.

stupid harry potter.

Meh I voted for the google guys. Come on, their IPO release was better than anything apple did this year. Let's face it, since the original iPod apple hasn't done anything revolutionary. Evolutionary, sure, but nothing ground breaking.

The Harry Potter fans seems to be out in force.

Personally, I voted for Mother Nature. She's been very busy this year. I think someone pissed her off.
