Subject: Early 2010's better than Early 2000's ?

Written By: thenewtattoo on 06/21/12 at 3:44 pm

Early 2010's better than the Early 2000's?

So far we are 3 years into the 10's. How do these 3 years 2010-2012 compare to 2000-2002. Would you says the 2000s in terms of technology and pop culture were better?, Or would you says so far the 2010s have beaten the 2000s in terms of quality of living.

How could the early 2000s, which are ten years ago, be better in technological aspects? It would be weird to state that.

Of course I want the early 2000s back because it were my teenage years, but the music today is way better.

Well, technology has gotten simpler as far as computers are concerned. We have Nook And Kindle for which people can download books for them to read. Music has gotten simpler too, we can listen to stations on the internet and download songs too for a small price to pay. And watching TV has gotten easier, we can watch our favorite shows on the internet for free or for a small price.

I liked the early '00s better, strictly because it has nostalgic value for me.

Overall, I like the early 10's better by a hair. The early 00's was not a good time in my life, mainly because of 9/11 and the period of depression and anxiety that followed. 2000 was great though, and maybe the early part of 2001. Technology-wise, of course now is better.

Myspace is Mid-00s and that's not what I meant by technology. I meant physical technology.

Depends on what criteria we're going by.  Both win and lose in certain categories. 

When it comes to my personal life, the early 2010s DESTROYS the early 00s for me.  2000 was a great year for me, the last full year of childhood.  2001 saw that era end with the entrance of my harsh junior high school years and things like 9/11 certainly didn't help with things.  2002 and 2003 were probably my low points.

By way of comparison, everything after the summer of 2010 and ESPECIALLY after the summer of 2011 has been amazing and despite a number of amazing highs and devastating lows, its been a great moment of growth.  I was finally given the chance to fulfill childhood dreams of study abroad, due to studying abroad in Japan in summer 2010 and in the fall of 2011 to the present.  I didn't know what I would do after college before this time period, but now I have a goal in mind and am hopefully on track to return abroad to work by this time next year.  I'll look back on 2010-2012 quite fondly, thank you very much.

Hate to be a little pedantic, but anything between April 2003 and August 2006 qualifies as mid '00s(the early '00s would be January 2000-March 2003 and the late '00s would be September 2006-December 2009). ;)

And that means we have less than a year before the mid '10s begin(in April 2013), this decade is flying by.

2000-2003 is early  2004-2006  is mid  & 2007-2009 is late

In math when picking a middle number its 5

I agree with Emman in this case. The mid part usually is the longest in my opinion, the early and late part the shortest:

Therefore:

Early: 0-2-year
Mid: 3-6-year
Late: 7-9-year

The mid-10's will be starting in about 6 months.

Myspace is definetly more of a mid-00's thing. Just because it was launched in 2003 it does not mean that it was widespread that time. Even as late as 2007, when the song 'Online' by Brad Paisley was released, it was more or less the 'MySpace-era'.

From what I remember, culturally the first half of 2003 was early 00s and the second half was mid 00s. I would include early 00s up to June 2003. Mid 00s is July 2003 up through 2006.

During the early 00's 9/11 occured, the War in Iraq, and Bush was president.  During the early 10's there was the Great Recession  and Obama was president.  Technology is a little better now that we have Iphones and Ipads.  The Early 10's are slightly better in my opinion, but there are still alot of problems.  The 00's culture was bland, boring, and forgettable.

In math when picking a middle number its 5


Divide a decade(10 years) into 3 equal parts and each part of a decade is exactly 3 years 4 months long, having the early '00s be longer than the mid/late part makes no sense at all, the "3" year is the beginning of the mid part and the "6" year is the beginning of the late part. So the mid part is not 2004-2006, it's April 2003-August 2006 and the late part is not 2007-2009 but September 2006-December 2009.

The reasoning you're using is erroneous because I could say the early '00s is 2000-2001, mid is 2002-2003, and the late part is 2004-2009 and that would be equally valid under your premise, the decade has to be divided into 3 equal parts, having one part of a decade be longer than the other 2 parts is just kind of ridiculous, just like if you divide the decade into 2 parts(just early and late), the early '00s would be 2000-2004 and the late '00s would be 2005-2009.

The mid '10s does not start in 6 months, it starts in about 9 months(April 1st, 2013), is there any reason the mid part is the longest, I could just well say the early part is only 1 year and mid part is 2 and the rest( the fourth year till the tenth year) is the late part.

I could understand if you mean pop culturally the mid part is the longest(since that's usually when the decade's culture is at it's peak) but if you mean technically by math you'd be incorrect.

My maths maybe. But recognizing the months would be mean. Especially in this forum  ;D. I prefer full years: 3-4-3, so the mid-decade starts together with 2013.

I am talking about in culture  but never the less you make a valid explanation although I would still argue the mids are longer pop culture wise.

Not really. The economy is at its worse since I was kid. The Global crisis is still going strong. Tech is great, but it'll become even better. It's destined to.

When it comes to pop culture, imo it's become a freak show; a bad, plastic 80's copycat circus that has none of the really cool 80's stuff, while mimicking the bad fads of the 80's making them even worse.

And:

I'd take early/mid 2000s Justin Timberlake, Avril Lavigne, Dirrty-era X-tina, Shania circa I'm Gonna Getcha Good, etc. any day of the week over the **** they released during the late 00's/early 10's and singers that got big recently like Kesha, Justin Bieber, etc.

I loved how most pop singers during the 2001-2004 era sounded raw, more underground; many of them sounded more like AC than pop/dance, a lot of them went for urban sounds and some even went for punk-like vibes. It was pop music you weren't afraid to say you like, unlike what we have now/had in the late 90's. Stupid, 90's bubblegum stuff was largely over by then. In 2005-6, however, music started going sorta plastic again.

Just forgot to mention my personal life -- it was way better in the early 00's except 2001 when my grandma died on 9/11.  :\'( It had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks (I'm not even American), but both events hurt me. Actually, the twins falling sorta symbolized the end of my childhood and the end of my grandma's life. :\'(

But life goes on and, despite that, 2003-2005 was my highest point in life till now. :P

Since mid 2005, though, I suffer from social anxiety and constant depression that are ruining my life -- I don't have any friends since 2007 and I don't have a gf since 2005. :-\\

Anyway, when it comes to cars, I think most European and Japanese cars are getting uglier since the mid/late 00's.

Good point,  but I think that pop culture-wise, the general theme is that it's been like that throughout the whole 2000's and it was stagnant throughout the 00's era.
