Apple iPhone Event 2014 -- Apple Watch Tim Cook Reaction 2

Remember in 2006 when you were the TIME person of the year? That was fun. That’s not happening again this year and, on Monday, TIME released the finalists for who might take the cake for person of the year in 2014.

Apple CEO Tim Cook is on that list as is noted as the person “who introduced Apple’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, Apple Watch and Apple Pay this year, and whose decision to come out made him the first openly gay Fortune 500 CEO.”

Cook isn’t alone, however; there are six other names (or groups) on TIME’s shortlist, including the protestors in Ferguson, Missouri, caregivers of Ebola patients, Vladimir Putin, Taylor Swift, Alibaba’s Jack Ma, Masoud Barzani—the current president of the Iraqi Kurdish region—and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

TIME’s person of the year will be revealed on Wednesday. Who do you think should win?
