10 Tech Events That Shaped the Decade

by Eric Lundquist
It's the end of 2009 and, according to some, the end of the first decade of the 21st century. Either way, it's been an interesting 10 years, and even though the dot-com era is long behind us, the pace of technology keeps accelerating. With that in mind, eWEEK's Eric Lundquist, who has been here for it all, takes a look back at the last 10 years and at the most interesting developments in technology and IT management, including the rise of bloggers, the fallout of Sarbanes-Oxley, the growing importance of social networking Websites such as Twitter and Facebook, and how a company called Google changed our understanding of the Internet forever.
Since 1996, Eric Lundquist has been Editor in Chief of eWEEK, which includes domestic, international and online editions. As eWEEK's EIC, Lundquist oversees a staff of nearly 40 editors, reporters and Labs analysts covering product, services and companies in the high-technology community. He is a frequent speaker at industry gatherings and user events and sits on numerous advisory boards. Eric writes the popular weekly column, 'Up Front,' and he is a confidant of eWEEK's Spencer F. Katt gossip columnist.
