Topic: 2000s


Summary

The 2000s, also written '00s or 00's, and some call it the Twenty Hundreds or Two Thousands or Noughties, is the period from January 1st, 2000 to December 31st, 2009.

Note, some people confuse "2000s" or the terms "Twenty Hundreds" and "Two Thousands", as meaning the entire 21st Century, instead of just the Decade from January 1st, 1950 to December 31st, 1959.

This article is about the Decade from January 1st, 2000 to December 31st, 2009. I prefer to calls this decade the "Noughties".

At my consulting companies peek, I had 8 people working for me -- 4 full time and 4 part time -- and had over 25 clients. (Not bad for some who was 26/27. A stark constrast to most people I knew, who had not had an education after high school, and were all still "partying".)
