Cya 2009, Hello 2010, Last Decade of Tech

As we approach the end of the first decade of the new millennium, things feel kind of weird. 10 years ago, we were all worried the world was going to end with Y2K, and now we don’t even think about it.

What were some of the best things tech to come out of the last 10 years? (this list is in no particular order)



Facebook (MySpace paved the way, and the others, Friendster)


Windows XP




SQL Server 2005

.NET from Microsoft

Gmail, WordPress


PlayStation 2, and Xbox 360.. and even the Wii

Wireless.. G, N, Mice, Keyboards

USB 2.0

Craigslist (after it expanded from the Bay Area)


Pandora (internet radio)


GPS (Civilian Based – came out around 2004-2005)


Music Games (Guitar Hero, Rockband, etc)

And I am sure there is a ton more I could think of.

Just think about it, 10 years ago we didn’t have anything like the above list in the tech arena. What long way we have come, and those are just some of the highlights.

What are some things you think should be on the list?
