The Noughtie List highlights, pt 1

posted by Jenni Leder Dec 09, 2009

Hey guys, it's Jenni, the curator for The Noughties List.

First, I would like to thank everyone who have already submitted some great links. And please, don't be shy with emailing links or any other suggestions for me. For my first post I wanted highlight defining the decade.

During the decade, people spent their time trying to name it. From what I gather, most English speaking countries have decided on "Noughties." The US on the other hand, can't seem to make it's mind on what to call the decade, but many consider this The Worst Decade Ever .

When end of a decade approaches, everyone takes a moment to look back at those 10 years. There were many "oh ya.." moments for things I forgot about. Last August, Kottke posted Momus' "one man's view" on the decade. It's worth a read if you haven't read it, or read it again cause it's really well thought out. And lastly, an opinion of the 2000s by those who were born in 2000.
