Purrson of the Year

Hey everyone. Time magazine name us as "Purrson of the Year!" Well not specifically us cat bloggers, but everone who posts stuff on line.

According to the managing editor of the magazine, Richard Stengel, "that individuals are changing the nature of the information age, that the creators and consumers of user-generated content are transforming art and politics and commerce, that they are the engage citizens of a new digital democracy."


So all of us who do blogs, post pics and videos are selected! They did an interesting thing for the cover, it shows a mirror, as you can see me and my reflection.

So concatulations to all of us!

Wow! You made the cover of Time! It's right here on the web. What a famous cat you are. We can say "we knew you when . . . "

Mom, what do you mean, "we're all on the cover?" We only see Derby there.

Congrats on being person of the year...especially when you're a feline! That makes it even more of a feat!

My Agent doeesn't subscribe, so I wasn't a contender. Sigh...I could have used the attention.

[Editor's note: No, you don't need more attention...]

Merry Christmas, Derbster!

That's very interesting, Derby. I only hope that people who decide to criticize and label others and their creativity realize what they're doing when they decide to treat us with disrespect for our crafts. I think I might have to go out and buy the issue just so I can read it for myself.

Our daddy was very amused about this choice, too. I believe he said something like "After all, how many subscriptions to Time does Koffi Anan or Donald Rumsfeld really need?"

Heehee.

That is furry cool! Derby, you are now famous ... You should be getting showered with money, room service, and valet parking for all of your "famosity" ... (Mom said that "famosity" isn't a word in English, but I say "bah"!).
Concatulations!
