Tim Cook was second runner-up for Time's Person of the Year
Time's annual Person of the Year was announced today, and it was President Barack Obama. Yesterday, we reported that Apple CEO Tim Cook had made the short list of those being considered for the honor and today we know how he fared. Cook came in third, according to Time's editors.
The first runner-up for Person of the Year was Malala Yousafzai, the 17-year-old Pakistani education and women's rights activist wounded earlier this year during an attempt on her life by Taliban gunmen. The third and fourth runners-up were Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi and CERN scientist Fabiola Gianotti, respectively.
Although he wasn't the top pick, Time still produced a cover featuring Cook and an article on why he made the short list as the "Technologist." You can read the piece in its entirety on Time's site.
