The Aughts: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

With the end of the decade upon us, I thought it would be a good time to reflect on the past ten years. I'm interested to see what people think was good and bad about the 2000's. What has this decade given us that we can look back and think "yeah, that was a good decade"? What it given us that we can look back and think "man, that was a crappy decade to live through"?

Some random opinions (no particular order or level of overall importance):

Some Good: Battlestar Galactica; early completion of the Human Genome Project; Firefly; U.S. Supreme Court rules against anti-sodomy legislation; weblogs; The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask; SpaceShipOne; Wikipedia; first non-Caucasian U.S. President; iPods.

Some Bad: Sega loses the console war; 9/11; Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition; Iraq War; weblogs; Freddy Got Fingered; SARS; Firefly cancelled; Columbia disaster; SciFi Network becomes SyFy Network.
