The decade according to 9-year-olds

So much has defined this past decade, but imagine what it would be like if the past 9 years were the only years you had lived through. Yahoo! News editor Allison Louie-Garcia spoke to fourth graders in Orange County, Calif. to get some perspective on the ’00s from those who have only experienced it.  From naming the biggest celebrities, to discussing computer habits, to explaining 9/11, these 9-year-olds’ answers–often funny, sometimes sobering, always candid–offered a clear snapshot of life in the 21st Century.

    I couldn't help but smile when the kids were listening to the Britney Spears song and the sound of a dial-up connection. Man these kids don't know how good they have it!
