Persons of the Year

Time Magazine acknowledges the power of 'Social Networking' and the emerging technologies that give people the ability to interact with each other and be contributors to our changing world.

This year their 'Person of the Year' is ..........................YOU !!

Quotes from the article:

"This is an opportunity to build a new kind of international understanding, not politician to politician, great man to great man, but citizen to citizen, person to person. It's a chance for people to look at a computer screen and really, genuinely wonder who's out there looking back at them"

"It's about the many wresting power from the few and helping one another for nothing and how that will not only change the world, but also change the way the world changes"

Inspirational stuff and something to think about as the Unconference approaches.

More attendees

It's been great to hear of people who are interested in this concept and who are coming along to join in the fun.

Genevieve Tucker has registered for the Uncon and put some news out about it on LINT, the Australian library blog network. Genevieve has just graduated from the grad dip at RMIT at the tender age of 46 and has been writing a blog about books, Reeling and Writhing, for the last two years. She has links with several prominent Australian bloggers, has written on new media and blogging for Screen Hub and Australian Screen Education, and has an upcoming article on book blogging in the December issue of the Australian Literary Review. She hears quite a bit about Uncons from time to time from her US blogging mates and would love to see one in action!
