Defining the 2000s

I know we are almost over with the second decade of the new century but I want to know what you guys consider the trends either in fashion, technology, music etc from 2000-2010

In movies they always have certain fashion/music traits that they use to easily show the decade in which the movie is based. So if they were to make a movie based between 2000-2010 what are the things they might show to represent that era

Re: Defining the 2000s

In technology you'd show people using pre-smartphone-era cellphones, and things like the Game Boy Advance and the original white iPod. If there's a scene with a computer, the monitor would be CRT or non-widescreen LCD, with Windows XP (especially with the green hilly background). Some of that would be different depending on the year though.

Growth of social media, whether for making friends, marketing, or (unfortunately) bullying/scams/crimes

Re: Defining the 2000s

In the 60s people protested against the war and for civil and women's rights. Now everyone protests everything and with 24/7 media they all get attention.

Re: Defining the 2000s

The 2000s: The Entitlement Decade, the "I can't live without my smartphone!" decade.
The 2010s: The "It's not *my* fault!" AKA: the decade of the crybabies
Also: the decade Social Media took over the world.
The 2020s: (?) The decade the robots become superhuman, blow us up, and take over the world.

I hope 2020 and beyond is more reading of history and putting one's self in a proper perspective of that history...regardless of what some social media blogger or news analyst or news commentator observes.

Re: Defining the 2000s

DVDs came out, the entertainment companies released home video versions of unpopular movies that had sat in the vaults for decades, and they all sold. It was a good decade for entertainment companies.

That was probably the last gasp of physical formats. While people were buying movies on disks, bookstores, record shops, video rental stores, magazines, and newspapers went out of business.

Re: Defining the 2000s

The 2000s were also the era when the merchants of fear finally found a new boogieman to wave in front of the populace. From when the Berlin Wall came down in 1989 to when the World Trade Center came down in 2001, communists weren't a threat to the American Way of Life. Fear mongers had to make do with swine flu, satanic rituals, and similar trivia.

Islamic fundamentalists don't have nuclear missiles, but at least they behead an occasional journalist on the internet. Building personal power by spreading popular fears was working again.

Thank you. I was invited to a millennium party on December 31, 1999. I told them I was going to wait for the real one in a year.

Re: Defining the 2000s

To me the 2000's have the same feel as now. I don't see much difference. Which probably means I'm getting old.

Re: Defining the 2000s

^that's how I kinda feel. i see movies and there seems to be a big difference between the 60s and 70s. But I can't tell much difference between the current decade and the past one

Re: Defining the 2000s

On the entertainment side, the 2000's started having shows that were less episodic where you could watch shows in random order and get a complete story. Now you have to watch the shows in order and really can't miss an episode or you will be lost.

Entertainment side of 2011 and beyond, laugh tracks virtually disappeared from sitcoms. Prior to 2011 sitcoms had laugh tracks with the rare exception of a show like Doogie Howser or Hooperman.

Re: Defining the 2000s

EVERYONE finally got on the internet. And then the internet got fast.

Fundamentalist douchebags and 9/11. Bringing third-world terrorism to the USA and causing problems for everyone.

Smartphones (my friend showed me his iPhone back in 2007 and I was blown away by the full internet browser).

Social media, Youtube, streaming - and their devastating effect on workplace productivity.

Everyone started eating sushi.

Gyms started popping up EVERYWHERE (this might be post-2010).

I got fat.

I agree with these two the most. The whole move to $10/month gyms really pushed that.

Laugh tracks started phasing out well before 2011 with a pretty large line-up of non-traditional sitcoms (The Office, Curb Your Enthusiasm, 30 Rock, Arrested Development, Parks and Recreation, Modern Family, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, etc; ) it was mostly CBS that kept them around a while longer.

Re: Defining the 2000s

The 90s was the last generation that had a "feeling" to it to me. Even then it was vague. Grunge, the decline of rock music and the beginning of the internet age. No real fashion trends.

Are you posting from work right now? I am.

You can read a lot about it. Just Google "workplace productivity social media".

But that might be more of a 2015 thing than a 2000-2010 thing.
