Best and Worst of 2009: The Year (and Decade) in Review

In another week, it's out with the old and in with the new, but what about that old? Now's the time to reflect on the big events, the changes to the world as we know it. Over the next two weeks, we will dish up a total of 14 slideshows, focusing on subjects including wild and weird new species that first showed their scaly, slimy, and sometime furry heads in 2009; some unbelievable green tech concepts (solar powered headphones, anyone?); the good, the bad, the ugly, and the downright crazy lobbying efforts (yes, that forged letter incident made the cut); the year in cars, the year in Digg and Stumble Upon stories, and much more.

We had to tackle the whole decade when it came to green in general and architecture--two major (and often related!) topics in which the grander scale seemed like the right idea.

So pop the champagne and give a nostalgic nod to the year gone by in our Best and Worst of 2009: The Year (and Decade) in Review.
