Who changed the world in 2011?

So who changed the world in 2011 – this year of revolution – technological, political, economic, and more?

Was it Twitter? The Blackberry Messenger? Steve Jobs?

Or was it Aung Sang Suu Kyi prevailing over tyranny? Was it the Occupy movement, the UK’s urban rioters? The bankers? The markets?

Or was it a vegetable salesman in Tunisia who sparked the Arab Spring?

Perhaps it was the scientists at Cerne led by Antonio Ereditato whose team concluded that Einstein’s theory of relativity may be wrong about neutrinos and the speed of light!

Or yet another technology giant? 1354136941001

The canvas is yours, so are the paints. Who or what defined the pinnacle of this year of revolution?
