It's All About Us


Tme Time Magazine picks YOU as the Person of the Year -- the podcasting, social-networking, YouTubing masses.

Captain's Quarters calls it a suck-up choice.

Jeff Jarvis asks, What took Time so long?

Nora Ephron writes a thank you speech:

Time might want to know how I manage to Do It All, which I do. They might want my favorite new recipe, for leek bread pudding (although they could copy it out of the December Martha Stewart, where I got it). They might want to know about my favorite new ice cream flavor (Haagen-Dazs caramel cone), although I already mentioned it in a recent blog, God forbid there should be any fact about me that isn't known to just about everyone. I mean, that's how it is here in the new digital democracy, we tell everyone everything.

Dan, I have my own theory — I think the Time staff just got complacent around the holidays.
