The first post-Internet decade

By what definition? The Internet has not passed, so this cannot mean "the first decade after the demise of the Internet"; but, since the Internet was born in the 1960s, neither does this decade qualify as "the first decade since the inception of the Internet". If it means "the first decade after a lot of noise was made about the Internet, even though it was quite mature before then", I question the validity of this title. -- Bignose

The International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World (2001-2010)

I initially thought somebody was having a joke with this, but I checked and it's a genuine UN declaration. I hereby wish to start the campaign to have the 2011-2020 decade named the "International Decade for Having International Organisations Tackle Real Issues Instead of Generating Stupid Platitudes" --Robert Merkel
