For the year of 2006 Time has announces that “You” is the person of the year. With the increase in social networking and the popularity of sharing through the Internet, community now has a whole new meaning.

My praises go to all of the librarians who have been for social networks and services centered around teens. You could be the person of the year for the teens in your library, and isn’t that the reason we go to work everyday.

Thanks for making 2006 a great year.

    I always KNEW it was all about me.

    I really believe a lot of this results comes from the gamer mentality – in a game environment, you are the center of the game universe, and omnipotent as you navigate your avatar through a space… of course if you grow up with this, you develop high self esteem and the sense the world should cater to your whims, wanting your needs met on your time, and your customized terms. You also see your input to the world as valuable.

    Presto! Web 2.0.
