Greatest Inventions of the last 10 years

Posted by Erin Chapman, IDS Columnist

As 2009 draws to a close, Newsweek has compiled a list of the top-ten most important innovations of the last ten years. Check them out online:

http://2010.newsweek.com/top-10/unknown-in-1999-indispensable-now/chipotle.html

Their list includes Wikipedia, YouTube and – my personal favorite – Chipotle.

But, I think they left a couple out. Here are my addendums:

1) Facebook
2) iPod
3) “google” officially becomes a verb
4) the Blackberry
5) High-definition TV

What does you guys think are the defining developments of the last ten years? What did they leave out?

Nothing mentioned on this list is an “invention” but rather an “innovation.”

The last great “invention” was the World Wide Web. Everything else is a derivative of a product that has all ready been invented: Cell phones, computers, TV’s. Webpages (facebook, google) are not inventions.
