Time magazine's Person of the Year

The Time 2006 Person of the Year cover, above, features… Us, which makes a nice change from the usual president/businessman/pope. A quick scan of the Time Person of the Year archive shows that lone women have featured twice (1953's Queen Elizabeth II; 1987's Corazon Aquino), with 2002's set of three female Whistleblowers and 2005's threesome of Good Samaritans including Melinda Gates at the back adding a few more women to the count. There have previously been two other non-people selections: 1983's Home Computer and 1989's Endangered Earth.

So 2006 was a pretty unique year in Time's view. What changes will it be making to ensure it has a future in the new reader-orientated Information Age?
