Decoding the Decade: The future so far
Ten years. 120 months. 3,652 days. And through them all, people went about their lives; the weather ran its (sometimes menacing) course; plants and animals lived and died.
Yet these were also the first few ticks of a new millennium, one marked by social upheaval, wars, scandals, flashes of hope, new technologies and innumerable hours of reality TV. When future generations look back on this decade, what will their verdict be? And which vital developments will they overlook?
We'll tell you what we think on Dec. 26, both online and in print. But every Monday until then, we'll reveal one of the challenges we have set for ourselves - and ask you to weigh in . Come back a week later to see the results, along with the next challenge.
