Whether it’s old friends remembering good times or the “where were you when” conversations about major historical events, everybody likes to indulge a little nostalgia now and again. The approach of a new year often serves as a trigger for this sort of memory lane wandering. Well, it seems that Twitter is no different. All afternoon people have been posting their reminiscences with the #10YearsAgo tag. It seems a lot of people have interesting things to say about what they were doing a decade ago. Here’s a sample:
