    Cool What was 2000-2010 "About"?

    So yo dawg, I was wonderin', when fools look back at us in like the year 2050 when weed has been legalized and shit, what will they remember 2000-2010 for? Cuz, check it, 1960's was all about peace and drugs and all that, and the 1970's was all about drugs, but not so much about peace. Then the 80's came along and the Neocons were at war with Motley Crue, and people had neon clothes that were cool as ICE. Also, the Cosby Show. Then the 1990's came... I still ain't sure what that was about but that's cool.

    So what will 2000's be remembered for?

    The 90's were about a return to realism, and raising environmental concerns. There were raves, electronic music and grunge. There was a liberal backlash. Third wave feminism. OH, and everyone started drinking coffee.

    2000 - 2010 was about reliving the 80's, obsessing about 9/11, and reality television.
    Duh.

    The last decade was about the internet, the noosphere and the global village.

    Finally we are coming to our senses. The eye is no longer privileged by literacy, but the ear and the skin are getting a look in.

    We are no longer just visual, we are also aural, tactile and proprioceptive.

    The electronic media continue to transform us from literate individuals to electronic tribes.

    Do you think this is a good thing? Have you read Marshall McLuhan's student, Neil Postman? Amusing Ourselves to Death?

    I think it is like the weather - it is beyond good and evil.

    And they tell me there is no bad weather - only bad clothes.

    The medium is the message, and so never ending entertainment is to put our critical minds to sleep so the electronic media can operate on us without us feeling a thing.

    We are amusing ourselves asleep, so something far more important, far more momentous, can occur.

    You can't feel it, you can't see it, because you are looking in the rear vision mirror of amusing content while the medium is rushing towards us through the windscreen.

    American History for that era

    Republicans f%^&ing things up...

    ... oh yes, and religious wars, terrorism and economic issues!

    I would head the History Book Chapter "A Decade of Turmoil" or something vaguely lame like that!

    The History of the Rest of the World

    Chinese acceleration, the information age, economic issues and sending some troops to fight in someone else's war if you're unlucky!

    Oooh... and freakishly odd weather occurrances and disappearing cultures... a decade of rapid changes

    Sums it up pretty nicely, I think. Encompassing so many different parts of our lives. Mine, anyway. Thanks G.W.
