What did we do to deserve this?

Nudd1_1This Time Person of the Year promotion is pretty cool. I did practically nothing this year in terms of changing the world, yet there I am on the Reuters board in Times Square (at around 5:13 p.m. last Friday afternoon, according to the e-mail I got from Time). There’s still time for you to submit your own portrait. When I heard of this promotion last week, this was the only photo of myself I had on hand—my Adweek column pic. I slaved away for hours once on one particular column, and after it ran, with this photo, I got a grand total of one e-mail from the Adweek readership. All it said was, “Nice combover.” Ouch.
