I've been named Time Person of the Year 2006!

This year Time has announced that you are Time Person of the Year. “Yes, you. You control the Information Age. Welcome to your world.”

They're talking about user generated content and community collaboration on the web having taken off this year. They mention Wikipedia, MySpace, Facebook, YouTube, SecondLife, Amazon, blogging, podcasting and open source software.

“This is an opportunity to build a new kind of international understanding, not politician to politician, great man to great man, but citizen to citizen, person to person. It's a chance for people to look at a computer screen and really, genuinely wonder who's out there looking back at them.”
