Aught to say about the decade

As 2009 draws to a close (and good riddance), we also conclude a decade. The web is replete with lists, retrospectives, and observations about the year and the decade. Here are a few items that seem especially apt for this blog's readers:

Top 10 Science Fiction Disappointments Of The Past Decade, in part because I sympathize (not to say I've even seen all of these) -- but mostly because I can't resist this image. 

Top Ten Tech Stories for the Decade, because, well, I'm a computer guy as well as an SF enthusiast.

The Top 10 Science Stories of 2009 [Slide Show], from Scientific American

The 2009 Science Fiction Power List, is full of SFnal awesome.

SFcrowsnest Fantasy, Horror and Science Fiction Books Chart, from across the pond (and, I'll modestly disclose, a book of mine is well-placed in the list). 

From National Geographic, Top Ten Space Finds of 2009: Nat Geo News's Most Viewed

From, 9 Astronomy Milestones in 2009

And finally, not exactly fitting the theme: Stars Find Fountain of Youth Via Vampirism and Collisions, because, really, how could anyone resist?
