Cheers to Blawgers!

Friday, December 29, 2006

A quote from this week's Time Magazine:

We're looking at an explosion of productivity and innovation, and it's just getting started, as millions of minds that would otherwise have drowned in obscurity get backhauled into the global intellectual economy.

Who are these people? Seriously, who actually sits down after a long day at work and says, I'm not going to watch Lost tonight. I'm going to turn on my computer and make a movie starring my pet iguana? I'm going to mash up 50 Cent's vocals with Queen's instrumentals? I'm going to blog about my state of mind or the state of the nation or the steak-frites at the new bistro down the street? Who has that time and that energy and that passion?

The answer is, you do. And for seizing the reins of the global media, for founding and framing the new digital democracy, for working for nothing and beating the pros at their own game, TIME's Person of the Year for 2006 is you.

I know that this has been discussed in many other blogs, so let me just be the tail: Cheers to fellow blawgers who has shared their knowledge in the blogosphere. Hopefully next year people will have a faster, better and cheaper access to the legal knowledge. Law for everyone!

Happy New Year!
