The first decade of the 21st century is rapidly receding into the past. That means we media types are reflexively looking back at the “aughts” to remember the highs and lows (It’s in our contract).
I’ll be writing a column this week on my favorite artifacts of the last decade, things that I would put in a time capsule to capture the flavor of these times. What would music, movies, TV shows, gadgets or news trends would in your time capsule? With two wars, 9/11, Bush/Cheney and Britney Spears, maybe the 2000s aren’t the best decade to look back on, but there must be something worth savoring and remembering, no?
