We’re at 2007 already and we still haven’t remotely gotten close to any kind of beginning of a consensus when it comes to describing the decade that we are currently in. And no one seems to care! Oh sure, no problem, what’s the big deal? We can just call it the new millennium or whatever.

But have you stopped to consider what we’re going to do in three years when it’s 2010 and we want to describe this decade?

Radio stations are a prime example: “We play the best music from the 80’s, 90’s and Today!” The average person doesn’t stop and think about the fact that ‘Today” here is just a convenient and mindlessly comforting euphemism for “This decade that includes music from 2000 to 2009, which we don’t really have a name for.”

In three years, unless something amazing and unexpected happens, they’re going to have to say “We play the best music from the 90’s, the um, well, that last ten year period, and Today!”

And don’t get me started on the fact that we won’t have a good name for the next decade either.
