TIME’s Person of the Year is Mark Zuckerberg. Seriously?

Read the HuffPost Article here

Just about everyone commenting on this post seems to think that Julian Assange deserves the “Person of the Year” award. Wikileaks’ Cablegate didn’t come out until a few months ago, and even though Assange has shed light on many things regarding internatio­nal politics, he himself was not one of those people who was involved in it.

I don’t think Zuckerberg or Liu Xiaobo deserve it either, because both individual­s, while having achieved remarkable things, made their mark years ago, not 2010. But perhaps the same could be said about Ang San Suu Kyi…

Not to sound too shallow, but how about Christophe­r Nolan? He did give us the year’s most thought-pr­ovoking (and arguably the best) film, getting people to discuss things other than money or politics.
