TIME magazine list of candidates for person of the year (with their links). The following is an estimate if that person’s work will be famous and still used and associated with their name 500 years in the future. For example people like: Politicians ~ Queen Elizabeth I, Stage ~ William Shakespeare, Military ~ Sir Francis Drake. All of the candidates are contributors to modern society but this list is for potential for distant fame. Something this person has done recently which will make their work relevant to people’s lives in the distant future. Previous choices were:
Probaway’s Person of the Year. – Cesar Millan – 2007
Probaway’s Person of the Year – 2009 – To be announced: Jan 2, 2010
TIME magazine’s list from December, 2009
This list was derived from TIME magazines list which an attempt to find those whose work will still be associated with their name 500 years from now. All of the first 100 on TIME’s list were considered and the next 100 were checked only for the possible candidates. Some of my favorite candidates were not on TIME’s list but several were. After a months consideration, the Probaway’s Person of the Year will probably come from this list, most likely from someone with a ( yes ) rating. A couple of the comments were intended to be a bit comic and I hope there is no offense taken as there certainly wasn’t any intended.
