Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos, the young American entrepreneur whose 
vision of a giant Internet bookstore helped pioneer the global online 
shopping revolution, was named on Sunday as Time magazine's Person of 
the Year.  

"Bezos is a person who not only changed the way we do things but 
helped pave the way for the future," said Time managing editor Walter 
Isaacson, explaining the magazine's choice.  

"E-commerce has been around for four or five years ... but 1999 was a 
time in which e-commerce and dotcom mania reached a peak and really 
affected all of us," he said.
