TIME Person of the Year
TIME magazine announced its Person of the Year this morning: Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. Wrote Managing Editor Rick Stengel: “For connecting more than half a billion people and mapping the social relations among them (something that has never been done before); for creating a new system of exchanging information that has become both indispensable and sometimes a little scary; and finally, for changing how we all live our lives in ways that are innovative and even optimistic, Mark Elliot Zuckerberg is TIME's 2010 Person of the Year.”

Thanks to Rick, Design Director D.W. Pine and everyone at TIME.
