I still put "Time Magazine's Person of the Year 2006" on my resume.

As my former employer used to say "Enough about me. What about you? What do you think about me?"

Thank you Nancy for the elegant simplicity. The case could not have been made any clearer. This treatment should be used as an example of the powerful force of an idea stripped to its core.

So often I think of the Dalia Lama saying, "I am nothing, My enemy is nothing."

Of course, 'the most famous poster in the world' ('the world' being 'the USA') was a copy of the UK original, "Your Country Needs You", first published in 1914. In my -- probably biased -- opinion the original is more effective because, a) it features the real man in charge (as opposed to a fictional character), b) the position of the hand makes it much more difficult to ignore, and c) the copy is shorter and is more direct.
