2005 Person of the year?
The time magazine took out its list of 2005 persons of the year. and they've got Bill Gates, Melinda Gates and Bono as those persons.
I heard a lot about Bono & U2 along with Bob Geldof during the Live8 concerts this year. Also Bono has been a great activist as well as a rockist for quite a while now. so no surprise there.
Bill Gates & his microsoft has been in the business like an unmovable mountain, whether or not we like him. he's given a lot to the mankind as we know it, but what he especially gave in 2005, of that I'm not so sure.
As for Melinda Gates, frankly i didn't know much about her except that she was Bill Gates' spouse and involved in volunteering things as well. She also became one of the most powerful women of 2005 according to Forbes but that she was chosen for year 2005 persons, i can't agree.
Some of the other faces that i'd liked to have seen on the frontpage of Time magazine are Condoleezza Rice (who also happens to be the most powerful woman of the year 2005, according to Forbes), along with the Google Guys(Eric Schmidt, Sergey Brin & Larry Page) and Tony Blair.
