Kottke presents a megalist compiling many “Best Of” lists for the past decade. There’s a list for just about everyone here. Interesting ones include Global Language Monitor’s Top Words of the Decade (I had forgotten about Colbert’s truthiness!), the decade according to 9-year-olds (the dial-up part is so funny), worst dining trends, and some excellent book lists.
Check out what’s listed so far on The Noughtie List, and check back for updates.
