    Steve Jobs for Time Magazine’s Person of the Year

    Matt - November 10th, 2011 11:30 AM

The late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has been nominated for Time magazine’s Person of the Year. If he does indeed win, Jobs will be the first person to be posthumously awarded the title.

NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams announced the news on Wednesday. According to CBS News, this is something the magazine has never done before.

Brian Williams led the annual panel debate in New York, with panelists including actor Jesse Eisenberg, SNL head writer Seth Meyers and chef Mario Betali.

“One guy, who changed our world, and I said to Seth Meyers as we walked across Sixth Avenue, ‘Just look with me on this one block walk at how he changed the world around us. Look at how he changed the world,’” Williams said during his nomination speech. “‘Oh the places you’ll go’ and oh the way you will change forever the music and television industries. So may he rest in peace, Steve Jobs, and the spirit he represents, are my nominee for Person of the Year.”

The debate mainly focussed on whether a deceased individual should be given the distinction.

However, it seemed Jobs was the leading contender in the debate as Batali and Norquist both agreed with Williams’ nomination.

“The smartphone has changed the world as much as the Bible has,” Batali said.

Jobs was nominated last year, but lost out to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
