The first year of the new millennium and the beginning of the 2000s.

Basically just the 1990s and the last good, stable year.

George Bush had no power yet, the Twin Towers were still standing, 2D graphics were still accepted, etc.

The Y2K problem was finally over and practically no computers crashed.
2000 is the year we thought that computers would crash but it didn't.

The decade when everyone ran out of ideas...

See: Postmodernism/Postmodernity
In the 2000s, no new school of thought, art, or music was invented.

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.

(alt) The bastard child of 1980s fashion and 1990s ideas
2000s- Let's take all that's great from the 90s, commercialize it, and market it to everyone!

A decade where

Movies are just sequels, remakes, and Superhero type junk, but we do have some pretty decent stuff in the late 2000s.

The internet has turned into a haven for teenagers and young adults with Web 2.0

Anime is everywhere on the internet

People are not happy of what they got..they are spoiled rotten.

Rip-offs of previous decades in music and fashion. Everything from the 1930s-1990s, but with emphasis on 60s, 70s, and 80s.

The rise of emo and crunk/glam/dirty south rap

Indie freaks and scene kids all over the place...thank you MySpace and Purevolume

Clothes are basically a label on everything and you pay $90 for some jeans with holes in them.

It is cool to be a nerd with the geeky glasses and video games are awesome.

Everything is technology...no wonder why IT is in demand. To make software for 16 year old girls to "play" with their iPhone.

Disney pop and Hannah Montana all over the place.

To sum things up, the 2000s is a decade where everything is based on technology and spending money, causing the economy to go to hell. Then it is based on being hipster and retro because we can't afford or too lazy to think of something original and innovative.
2000s are boring. I think the 2010s will be a lot more original and interesting. The only thing that is "new" with the 2000s is the technology.

The death of the 1990's =(.

Also the year everyone went out and blew tons of cash on generators in suspicion of the world ending... idiots (in reference to same idiots of 6/6/2006 and future idiots of 12/21/2012).
Apocalyptic Idiot: Dude man, I coulda swore we were all goners when we hit the year 2000! It's definitely comin' in 2012...

Me: You're a moron. I've got your apocalypse right here in my fists... Viva la 90's!

America's last great year before its big wake-up call with 9/11. Also, final reign of Bill 'Pimp' Clinton and marks the dawn of the Sixth Generation Console Games; with PS2 out this year as well as DreamCast. Some noteworthy events include, but not limited to, Y2K, great movies (see Fight Club, American Beauty, Gladiator, Cast Away, X-Men). Unemployment was at its lowest in nearly 30 years in America during this time period (1999-2000).

Culturally, fashion was the same with the late 90's and musically R@B and Post-Grunge began taking reigns on the radio charts.
Contrary to what most people think, 2000 isn't the start of the new millennium. It's really 2001.
