TIME'S PERSON OF THE YEAR seems to be getting more attention than it probably deserves, with a lot of people in the blogosphere favoring, well, bloggers.
I'd love to see that, of course, but I don't think it's terribly likely. But hey, I could be wrong, and I guess I hope I am.
Jim Geraghty has a post on the subject, and there's more at Micropersuasion and the Hypergene Mediablog, where these two faux-cover images came from.
If we see either one of them become a reality, I'll be surprised. But pleased!
UPDATE: Halfway there, anyway, according to Betsy Newmark, who says she's got the inside dope.
