Grinding Noises

Living in the '00s

Now that we're scarcely a month away from the end of the 1990s, isn't it time we thought about what we're going to call the next decade? Sorry, but 'the new millennium' or even 'the first decade of the new millennium' is going to get really old really quickly.

The 'Noughties' is just a touch too twee, so how about a digital name for a digital decade: the Zeroes. To be followed, naturally, by the Ones.
