The Late '00s

What are the late '00s?

Depending on your definition, the late '00s can be:

September 2006 - December 2009

What will they be about?

March 2006 is the mid '00s, but in the latter half of the decade. We will probably never get any further into this decade, pop-culturally speaking.

2007 and 2008 will be changeful years, most likely. The faux late '90s culture that has contiued so long will finally start mixing with a culture that points towards the Tens.

2009 will be a real change year; it will probably still seem like the Zeroes, but there will be a significant backlash against this silly decade. By 2012, we will probably have a new pop culture, but then again who knows.

In 2008 the United States will be dominated by the Presidential Election. We may or may not get our first woman president.

I predict that a major terrorist attack, smaller than 9/11 but in the same magnitude of severity will occur sometime in 2006. Also, civil war in Iraq will be officially declared, greatly undermining the reputation of the Bush Administration to almost guarantee Democratic victory in 2008.

Toward the end of the Zeroes, the Internet will take a huge step in advancement.

This all may seem far off, but 2007 is less than two years from now, and the new decade less than four years. Let's hope this decade ends on a happy note.
