Will Snowden Be Time’s Person of the Year?

Time will announce their “person of the year” later this week

time-person-year-2013Earlier today they announced the ten people who made it on to the final list:

  • Bashar Assad, President of Syria
  • Jeff Bezos, Amazon Founder
  • Ted Cruz, Texas Senator
  • Miley Cyrus, Singer
  • Pope Francis, Leader of the Catholic Church
  • Barack Obama, President of the United States
  • Hassan Rouhani, President of Iran
  • Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services
  • Edward Snowden, N.S.A. Leaker
  • Edith Windsor, Gay rights activist

From a “tech” perspective Bezos and Snowden are the two we’ll be watching for, though personally I’d consider Snowden to be more important this year

    Sad day when Assad and Cyrus even make the list!

      Agreed. Although “Person of the Year” doesn’t have to mean good person by Time’s criteria, I think there are some surprising names on there. I can imagine staff saying: “Does it have to be ten?” 🙂
