So what’s it for then?

So now we are officially more than half way through the first decade of the 21st century. To be fair when I was very young I thought I’d be riding to work in a hovercar by now (I was VERY young). I beginning to wonder what its for?… I mean this decade. Popular culture tells us the 60’s were about idealism and protest. The 80’s were (broadly speaking) about greed and the era of the yuppie, the 90’s – apathy Generation X and the slacker ( I watched ‘Mallrats’ the other night which set me off thinking). Do we even have a zeitgiest anymore? What pop culture will people in the future remember about now? Maybe it will be the emergence of blogging, maybe it will be videogames as an art form? Maybe it will be Simon Cowell’s bloated head and another disposi-pop-act? Who can say?…
(I think that’s the most number of question marks I’ve used in a single blog entry).
