You AUGHT To Remember – Can you believe we’re at the end of the first decade of the 21st century? As with any end point, 2009’s finish is a good time for bottom line conclusions, all the more so when we’re at the closing of a decade. You AUGHT To Remember has taken up the task of counting down “the 100 trends, fashions, memes, personalities and ideas that shaped the first decade of the 21st Century.”
The list is quite remarkable and fascinating, involving posts accompanied by an explanation on why this or that entry made it to the list and constituting an influencing factor during the second millennium’s first decade. I went through the list (as of today, 95 out of 100 entries are listed), and my favorite ones are Wii, Lacoste Polo Shirts, Reality TV, Vitamin Water and Sex & The City/Desperate Housewives. As I am writing this post there are five more to go, so stay tuned.
