    What will the 90's be remembered for?

    What will the 1990's be remembered for, in your opinion. We all seem to attribute different decades to different struggles, epochs in thought, cultural revolutions.

    In the 60's the sexual revolution and the civil rights movement

    The 70's brought long hair and anarchism

    The 80's brought the Disco

    What did the 90's bring???

    i think the 90s can be summed up in the phrase "Bish Bosh, loads of dosh". It was the decade of the Yuppies. A completely new social class who could never be deterred from their course or suffer depression except for when they lost financial value. They worshipped money and all its trappings. As far as I know, they still do, but I don't come across them nowadays.
    It was also the era of sexual expansion when all the pervs came out of their closets.

    Indeed. The Internet. I forgot about that. And mobile phones. I'm sure they were created just for the yuppies. [I'M ON THE TRAIN!] But they didn't really become refined until this decade when broadband became more available.
    Each decade is remembered for something, but this is always the peak of it. It's starting point is always the decade before.
    As for the pervs, when they came out of their closets, it helped everyone to start to come to terms with their own sexuality. British TV has reflected this shift in attitudes to sex by documenting pornography, prostitution, swinging, S&M, and so on.
