What period do we live in? The Early 2’s

January 15, 2009

What to call the period just past–2000 to the present you wonder?

The Early 2’s as coined by photographer Steven Schafer and Charles Phoenix, slide show producer extrodinaire and author of Southern Californialand at the 5th Annual California Cultural & Heritage Tourism Council’s Symposium held at the historic Pierpont Inn in Ventura where the Art Predator has a media pass and is trying to do some live blogging…

Although after 2010, people may call it the “Teens” I bet in history that period will go down as part of the early 2’s as well. Or will it be The Early Twos? We’ll see! Certainly, we’re all tumbling toddlers trying to find our way int he new world world of web 2.0.

Just remember you heard it here first!

The Art Predator–on the prowl… more from the symposium soon–info on cultural tourism and how to turn cultural capital into economic capital by creating meaningful brand experiences.

Oh and you can experience Charles Phoenix in person at the DooDah Parade this Sunday 1130am in Pasadena; he’ll be the grand marshall.
