Time mag wants your vote for Person of the Year

Taking interactive media to heart, Time magazine is now asking for your input on who should be named Person of the Year. They're even offering the chance for your uploaded photo to be featured on a billboard in Times Square. (No word on how they're going to handle the copyright implications of that one).

With almost 100,000 votes already tallied, JK Rowling tops the user-generated list. Al Gore trailed her by 13,000 votes at "press time."

Whoever the magazine chooses - and whether or not your votes factor into the final decision - it has to be better than last year's mirror cover.

If you had to nominate someone for "Maryland Lawyer of the Year" or "Maryland Businessperson of the Year," who would it be?

What about "State government official of the year"? Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown? Comptroller Peter Franchot?
