"Life felt fine in 1999. Crime had fallen, stocks had soared, the Treasury was running a surplus, and we asked Who Wants to Be a Millionaire several nights a week."

Time Magazine is releasing a special TimeFrames issue on the major headlines from 2000 to 2010, and how our "perspective of major news stories has changed with time."

Or with the Internet, as the case may be, since back in 2000 there was no YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, three powerful mediums we take for absolute granted these days.

On Morning Joe this morning (video below) Time editor Rick Stengel described the issue as "a look back in order to look forward."

Their new issue is on sale Friday and live at TIME.com today.

Time also be airing a primetime show on CNN on Thanksgiving Day at 2 and 5 pm ET and throughout the weekend. Rick Stengel, Nancy Gibbs, Joe Klein, Fareed Zakaria, and others from Time are interviewed.
