With just a day left to decide, TechEye Towers has finally picked our person of the year. Time readers wanted Julian Assange on the cover but they got Zuckerberg instead. The Financial Times plumped for Steve Jobs because of his continued success in reviving Apple and pushing its profits, for the first time, past Microsoft. Ballmer didn’t get a look in anywhere.
It’s our first one so here are the rules. TechEye’s Person of the Year will have contributed engaging forward thinking solutions unlike any other, an innovator who has demonstrated real acumen – truly adept in their chosen field moving forward. A key game-changing paradigm shift.
After frenzied thinking through many, many difficult, sleepless nights, TechEye’s editorial team has unanimously decided that our Person of the Year 2010 is… yes, it’s Vondrashek, MD!
The mysterious Vondrashek has followed Mike Magee, TechEye’s editor in chief, through publication after publication leaving a string of profound insight as his trademark paw-prints. Here are some excerpts from Vondrashek this year.

And here are some select quotes from TechEye staff on Drashek’s ongoing support and why he’s won our honoured and prestigious Person of the Year.
Drashek’s in depth understanding of technology issues, and his ability to get to the heart of any matter make him an icon for what TechEye is all about. – Nick Farrell
Doctor Drashek takes on so many appearances it’s hard not to think of a certain other mysterious Doctor. We wonder if he has, or is, a TARDIS. – Dean Wilson
Vondrashek, alien watcher, is a visionary in his field and we are pleased to award him with the highest accolade available to us. – Hector Dish
What or who is Drashek? Sometimes we have suspected he is a journalist acquaintance. At other times we think he might be Mike Magee’s alter ego. But he’s not. – Mike Magee
