The Oh-Ohs? That’s a wrap…

So, here we are.  Just a little more than seven weeks until the end of another year.

Trying to focus on where the time goes gets progressively more difficult as our lives continue to get busier by the year.  That, of course, makes the end of any year a great time to try to attribute meaning to what we just experienced.  But the end of 2009 brings an even deeper sense of reflection as we welcome the dawn of a new decade.

There will be countless opportunities to relive the events of the past year and the past decade in the weeks ahead.  One site getting a head start is Newsweek, with their “Newsweek 20/10 : The Decade In Rewind” features and lists marking the start of the new century.

Kicking it off is “The Decade in Seven Minutes”, what editor Devin Gordon calls “a video mashup covering every major news event worth remembering over the last 10 years”.

Narrated by reporter Andrew Bast, it’s a great place to start the process of putting the past 10 years into perspective.

Argue about what’s included, argue about what’s missing, argue about what to call the decade (the Oh-Ohs?), argue if we should even consider 2000-2009 a decade or if 2001-2010 would be more appropriate.  Either way, it’s been an amazing journey with highs and lows that could never have been predicted.

Now, let’s get on to the next 10 years and see where we go from here.
