Word Of The Decade
It's that time again when we have to look back at the last ten years and assess what's happened. From the Y2K bug which never happened to 9/11. From Iraq to Afghanistan to the weapons of mass destruction which never were. From Bush to Obama.
The internet is always a good place to look for new technologies and it would be wrong to comment on the last decade as the internet decade. However, social networks such as Facebook and to an extent Twitter have defined the generation and the move from old school media to online perhaps like nothing else.
A current survey at YourOneWord has indicated that global warming and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq dominate the thoughts of most people. The question of course, is whether they dominate the thoughts of the next decade.
