The world's electronic infrastructure failed to fail on the eve of 2000, so the world had to adjust at the beginning of the new millennium. It was a tough decade—the attack on the World Trade Center, the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq, and wide-spread economic recession. Hurricanes devastated the Gulf Coast, and scandals rocked Wall Street, sports, and politics. At the same time, technology brought us into the future with the exploration of Mars, space tourism, the rise of social media, iPhones, and streaming video. Cute cats soon ruled the digital world. Meanwhile, motorcycles continued to get bigger and faster, racing got more exciting, and we waited breathlessly for what would come next.
