I was born three days before the 1970s ended. That has meant a couple of things: a) with a birthday so close to Christmas, I often got cheated out of gifts – lots of “combination” presents – and b) calculating my age is a snap. An added – and long-unappreciated – bonus is that every 10 years, as the world readies itself to mark the start of a new decade, I’m doing the same.

So today, as we welcome a fresh new decade, I wanted to bring you along on a look back at the 2010s. What have those years brought? And what does that mean for the next 10 years?
