2011, and the Decade to Follow

I knew that 2011 was a big year... but not until I saw the video above did I realize that so many events that will shape the decade to come all occured in the same year:

  • Tsunamis and nuclear disasters in Japan
  • Extreme weather worldwide
  • Revolutions in Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya
  • Rumblings of revolutions in Syria, Yemen, and Iran
  • Near economic collapse of the Euro zone, including riots in Greece
  • The death of three monsters: Osama Bin Laden, Gaddafi, and Kim Jong Il
  • The 99% 'Occupy' movement throughout Western countries
  • The passing of Steve Jobs

And countless other events and ideas and innovations that spread through the world like wildfire... It's not a cliche to say that we live in remarkable times.

Happy new year!
