You Name The Decade
You Name The Decade Photo

Shoulder pads
and Reaganomics belong to the '80s. The O.J. Simpson trial and grunge rock helped define the '90s. So September 11 and cell phone texting will remind us of … what? The zeroes? Americans have had 10 whole years to figure out what to call the past decade, and yet most people are still at a loss when it comes to referring to it as anything other than "the current decade" or simply "the 21st century"

Whatever word or phrase, if any, finally ends up catching on with the public, it’s worth noting that the decision has given Americans pause. And as we hurtle into the teens with an insatiable media cycle that chews up and spits out fads at breakneck speed, it might be worth savoring this literal pause in the conversation about our culture and where it’s going. In the meantime, here’s to the "Ummm's" or "Uhhh's." Take your pick.

What would you name the last Decade and why? What will you remember most about the past 10 years?

i call the actual time period "The Oh-ies" but i think it will be remembered best - by me anyway - as being the decade of remakes and remixes. so i raise my glass and propose a toast! here's to originality and better Toyota Camry drivers in the new decade!

I remember it as being the computer age although computers have been around a long time but this is the decade that home computers became the  in-thing along with everybody having a cell phone.

I call this decade the "aughts' or "naughts"

This is definitely the Internet generation, as that was mine and likely most of the people here's time-consuming hobby of the past 10 years.

The Naughty Aughties will be remembered as the explosion of the social information age. Everything everybody does is put out there before they are finished doing it. We all have friends, fans, followers who send us tweets, e-fist bumps and virtual gifts. 10 years ago there was no such thing as MySpace, facebook, blogs, twitter, YouTube, or even faniq.

Here are some of the ways I can "share" my blog: (It's ridiculous! LOL)
