I just recently flipped through some of my siblings yearbooks from the early-mid 2000s and was reminded how different not even ten years can make. I was in high school in the latter part of the 2000s which is more like today. However, 2000-2006 seems to be more like the 90s and afterwards is more modern. The music, fashion, and overall feel of the first six years of the 2000s were very reminiscent of the late 90s and internet was popular but still wasn't as popular as now and it was obviously not advanced (No Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, etc.) Cell phones weren't as huge as they are now and nobody had smart phones and tablets like today. In my middle school, half of the school didn't have cell phones and the other half was just getting it and kids nowadays have cell phones at the age of 5 or 6. I remember a lot of teenagers still using landlines as well and a lot of us listened to music from Walkmans or the Original I-pod. I couldn't tell the difference between the students of the yearbook from 1997 and a yearbook from 2004 or 2005. I feel like the late 90s-mid 2000s is when everything started to change. Music became worse, anti-fashion started, and everyone became glued to their mobile devices by about 2007. In the 2000s, there was still a lot of face to face contact (unlike today) as we didn't all have I-Phones yet like I mentioned. I feel like the year 2000-early 2006 was much more similar to 1996-1999 then is today and 2007-present is a separate entity. (2007 was also the year that the first I-Phone came out as well).

Yeah I'd agree, I think up to 2005 or so is very similar to the late 90s and since ~2006/07 is more or less the same as 2014 aside from some small differences.

9/11 (2001)
Youtube (2005)
crisis (2008)

all of these recent events changed things a lot

I can't say of a particular date but 2000s won't be remembered for great music/art/movies trends, it's more of a slow dying of the 90s.

9/11 made you feel worse but still in the 90s
youtube speed up internet and make you think you were really now in the new century
2008 collapse made you realized 90s were definitely over

The internet boom alone makes the 00s feel more like 10's than the 90s. The entertainment industry in the 00s is more similar to the 10s due to the age of piracy.

I lived in the 90s and through the 00s and I definitely disagree.

By the time 9/11 happened
Clinton had left office and there was a new form of millenial mood/zeitgeist. There was still a millenial feel to late 2001 and 2002 but 9/11 had altered the attitudes and culture of society. For examples, airports became stricter and people became paranoid. The millenial mood is not to be confused with the core 90s zeitgeist - it was easy to tell that the 90s were gone by the end of 2003.

Crisis
2008 was the beginning of the zeitgeist of the late 00s-early 10s. At the time it felt 00s, but in retrospect this is the mark of the 00s being over, not the 90s. The 00s zeitgeist was rather short ending ~early/mid 08.

The 00s also created many fine works in music, art and film and I am glad that I was there to live through the releases of these materials.

The first half of the 00s could be closer to the 90s, but to say that they're "very similar" is an exaggeration. 1997 is a different world from 2003. Hell, even 1999 is a different era.

Pre 9/11 00s = more like the 90s

9/11-2002/early 03 = closer to the 90s than the 10s, but only vaguely similar to the 90s

late 03-early 06 = different world to even the late 90s, about an equal distance from 90s and 10s

late 06-early 08 = closer to the 10s

late 08 = more like the 10s

This is a good question because there was a lot of "modern technology" existing in the 90s, but it wasn't culturally quintessential until the 00s.

'88 and '89 lead to 1990. 1990 is made up of stuff like Super Mario Bros. 3 (The second game was released in 1988), the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie (The action figures were first on store shelves in the summer of '88), and Home Alone (Macaulay Culkin starred in Uncle Buck).
