Basically the 1990s, but more commercialized, with much better technology and more conflict.
The decade of the hipster, indie rock, veganism, gay acceptance, and going "green".
The decade of the reality show, crappy television, the death of MTV, and the rise of emo.
The decade of constant crisis, which led to the evolution of the 24-hour news network.
The decade when we all realized that our entire lives depended on the internet.

2000s- Let's take all that's great from the 90s, commercialize it, and market it to everyone!
