As we move into 2012, it's interesting to look back in history at an event that was astonishing at the time and clearly prophetic.
The controversial event occurred on December 13, 2006 when Time magazine announced their annual choice for "Person of the Year." Can you recall who it was? Most of you will not.
"You" were chosen in 2006, as Time magazine's Person of the Year. Time recognized the millions of people who contribute user-generated social media content to Wikipedia, YouTube, MySpace, Facebook, and the multitudes of other websites featuring user contribution. If "You" were chosen today we would have to consider the contributions to countless new social network sites including such as Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+.
