[Whatever] of the Year
Posted by: Jon Henke on Tuesday, December 14, 2004

Via Instapundit, I see Powerline is lobbying for what amounts to a Lifetime Achievement Award for Glenn Reynolds, and VodkaPundit is suggesting Reynolds for Time Magazines Man of the Year.

While I certainly understand their sentiments--it's true, as Powerline wrote, that Instapundit's "tireless commitment, balanced judgment and generous spirit have contributed, more than anything else, to the creation of the blogosphere"--I think there is a more deserving person.

Or, really, not a person at all. This thing has done more for the blogosphere than any given pundit, politician, news outlet or issue....or any combination thereof. Without it, the blogosphere would be a pale shadow of what it is today.

Also, it had a pretty good IPO.

Yes, Google. I can't imagine blogging without Google News, Google Scholar, Google Uncle Sam, or just plain old Google.

If the PC could win "Person of the Year" in 1982, then I see little reason why Google--the most remarkable, representative internet tool of the individual technology/information age--could not, and should not, win Person of the Year for 2004.

I suspect Glenn Reynolds wouldn't mind.
