Comments on: How to squeeze a decade into 100 pictures What makes a great picture? Thu, 18 Aug 2016 11:13:37 +0000 hourly 1 By: TrueTime Wed, 23 Dec 2009 18:12:09 +0000 1.The 100th year of the 20th Century and last year of the 2nd Millennium was definitely and indisputably 2000.

2.The 1st year of the first decade of the 21st Century and of the 3rd Millennium was definitely and indisputably 2001 – obviously. The clue is in the number ‘1’.

3.The 10th and last year of the first decade of the 21st century will be 2010 – obviously. The clue is in the number ’10’.

4.The last day of the first decade of the 21st century and 3rd millennium will definitely and indisputably be December 31st 2010.

There is an ongoing concerted and fraudulent effort by the BBC, Reuters and other major media players to deny these facts for cynical commercial branding and packaging purposes. This is an abuse of their position of information stream control domination.

Clear thinkers will ignore them and respect and express true and honest chronological facts and conventions.

1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,one more to go…

A whole year left to take more excellent pictures to put in ‘The Reuters First Decade Of The 21st Century Photography Library’.

Because the stolen election in Iran (so similar to what has occurred in the US in the past decade), and what her death symbolizes are crucial events in the evolution of freedom in the Islamic world, IMHO.

The King of Pop standing in tears,
Five wars and a plane,
Michael Jackson again,
And the banks falling deep in arrears.

By: andrewgould Sat, 05 Dec 2009 22:24:05 +0000 As always, Reuters images are stunning.

By: arcade Sat, 05 Dec 2009 00:32:25 +0000 The single picture, or more specifically, the single video that has burned itself to my mind from this decade, is the video of Neda dying in Iran.

Nothing even compares to it. No picture. No video. Nothing.

It’s *the* most horrible, engaging and important thing caught on picture or video in this decade.

No contest.
