The millennium that began on January 1, 2000 and ends on December 31, 2999.
The 2000s, pronounced "two thousands" or "Noughties", was a decade that began on January 1, 2000, and ended on December 31, 2009. The 2000s generally continued the technological and socioeconomic changes that started in the 1980s and accelerated in the 1990s. Globalization had accelerated after the early 1990s fall of communism and continued to be a force in the 2000s. The growth of the Internet was one of the prime contributors to globalization during the decade, making it possible for people to interact with other people, express ideas, introduce others to different cultures and backgrounds, use goods and services, sell and buy online, and research and learn. The institutions, linkages and technologies that emerged or were redefined earlier would subsequently in this decade benefit many countries, in particular China and India. However, in other parts of the world such progress failed to address ongoing struggles with modernity, most notably characterized by the rise of al-Qaeda and other Islamist groups. Although Islamist attacks date back to the 1983 United States embassy bombing, the September 11 attacks in 2001 led to the United States, United Kingdom, Spain, Canada and other nations invading Afghanistan, as well as implementing various anti-terrorist measures at home and abroad in what was known as the War on Terror. The European Union saw further integration and expansion throughout much of Europe.
