The K worker as the "person of the year"

Via Judith Meskill's blog:

Basex Names The 'Knowledge Worker' Its 'Person-of-the-Year'; Microsoft, Xerox and Factiva Join In Honoring The Knowledge Worker.
According to this press release:
"...The Person-of-the-Year designation recognizes the impact which knowledge workers are having on the economy," said Jonathan B. Spira, chief analyst at Basex. "Without the knowledge worker, much of the business world would come to a standstill. Companies haven't figured out how to manage the knowledge workforce, and the average company with 1,000 employees loses over $12 million annually as a result."
