Its been a rocky (and difficult to name) decade. And as the fresh 2010 approaches, Newsweek and Time have both taken on the task of recapping it.
The ’00s: Goodbye (at Last) to the Decade from Hell
Time’s cover story this past week had a clever photograph and impressive timeline of the closing decade. It also had an optimistic view on why times will be getting better. It was well done, considering the daunting topic. More features online include a cringe-worthy photo essay – ‘The 10 Worst Things About the Worst Decade Ever.’
The Decade in Rewind: Newsweek 2010
I’ve got to hand it to Newsweek because they created an entire website based around their 2010 feature, and it has some great multimedia work. I could spend an hour looking through their Top 10 Lists alone, which range from Most Important Dates to Celebrity Mugshots. They also have a dozen sure to be poignant essays, a slideshow narrating each year and a ‘Decade in Seven Minutes’ video. Wow. I think we have a winner. And I think I’m going to be more than ready for 2010 after I finish reading/watching all this.
