Person of the Year, 2010

I’m very pleased to announce that the Uncertain Principles Person of the Year for 2010 is… SteelyKid:


Why do I say this? Well…

First, as lots of people will tell you, we’re all citizen journalists now. Which means that I’m every bit as entitled to declare a person of the year as Time magazine is.

Second, everything in Chateau Steelypips revolves around her, so she is clearly the most important and influential person here.

Third, she’s way cuter than Mark Zuckerberg. Granted, I don’t have a picture of Mark Zuckerberg wearing a napkin as a hat for direct comparison, but I like my odds on this one.

Now, you may be saying that this is just a transparent and silly excuse for posting another ridiculously cute toddler picture, and that she hasn’t really done anything to shape the wider world in the way that Zuckerberg’s invention of Facebook has. My reply to this is a simple question: What would you rather see turn up on your computer, a cute picture of SteelyKid, or yet another stupid Farmville invitation?

I rest my case.

    Steely Kid *IS* very cute. But, comparing her to Zuckerberg? EVERYONE is cuter than Zuckerberg…

    Since I don’t have a Facebook account, and since I read Thursday Toddler Blogging without fail, SteelyKid has certainly had more influence on me than Zuckerberg has!

    That’s a much more prestigious and meaningful award than that ridiculous Time magazine thing. Congratulations.
