The world really is flat.

Thomas Friedman

It gives us great pleasure to honor Thomas L. Friedman as The Webby Person of the Year. This award was established to recognize an individual or group of individuals who have instigated, documented and catalyzed great achievement on the Internet. Mr. Friedman’s outstanding writing and unparalleled journalistic curiosity on behalf of the New York Times and more specifically in his recent best-seller The World is Flat: A Brief History of the 21st Century makes him the ideals candidate for this award. His insightful description of Globalization 3.0, as he has coined it, spans the economic, political, technological and social spheres, fostering unequaled dialogue in university lecture halls, office boardrooms and urban watering holes alike.
