The eighties were known as the Me decade. The nineties have been called the Electronic age. So far, what would you label this decade?

"So far"? Did we skip a fucking decade because the thousands were that fucking shitty? I'll call that decade "the one that got away". The 20s...surprise, included 1920, but not 1930....get it?
So far, this decade has consisted of January, February, and 1/3 of March, so let's call it "that decade that everyone thought still belonged to the previous one and some fucking moron thought it made a good writer's block question".

In other words, what the fuck did this question mean? Is LJ run by illiterates?

ikr I hate the whole BAWWW 2010 IS REALLY NOT A NEW DECADE

BECAUSE JFC it's not like 1990 was still the 80s or or 1950 was still the 40s.

Sure it might "make sense" that it's the tenth year in a decade or w/e because we didn't start onYEAR 0 AD but that kind of counting was lost years ago. Did people in 1990 say the same thing?!

I bet they celbrated a new century in 1900 and no one complained!

"Decade" refers to things in 10s (I realise that's hard for those of us who don't use the metric system, but bear with me here), specifically years. Even MORE specifically, the part oft he year in the....TENS column. 10-19 is the same decade, and so is 00-09. A difficult concept, I know, but people have to realise that 2000-2009 was TEN YEARS LONG.....
