  2. Privacy became old-fashioned
  3. Wikipedia replaced the library

  1. Welcome, Uwe!

    Exactly, it’s the world according to Newsweek. 😉 But it’s really quite hard to collect impressions of the social, political, economical, cultural highlights and low points on a global scale. Here are a few more I’d add, looking at the whole world, but from my perch here in Munich:

    5. 2002: The Euro is introduced
    6.2003: Johnny Depp creates the role of a lifetime in Jack Sparrow
    7. 2006: Germany hosts the World Cup, introduces the practice of “public viewing” to the world and gains a positive self-image
    8. 2006: The TED Talks go online at http://www.TED.com and boost the quality of the Internet overnight
