Good Magazine's decade in food

Eastside bon vivant Jon Huck has passed along Good magazine's intriguing decade in food.
- It's fun to realize it's already been 10 years since Carrie Bradshaw starting eating cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery -- and Magnolia is finally making it to L.A. all those years later.
Other highlights:

2002: The Julie/Julia project is one of the early blogs that launches a craze for food blogging that continues to grow.
2004: Yelp launches, giving earlier sites like Chowhound a run for their money and elevating dirty Internet tricks to a new level. Also, Julia Child dies.
2005: The word "locavore" becomes popularized.
2009: The White House organic garden is planted.
No entries for 2010 yet -- have you noticed any food milestones so far? Also no entries for food trucks...clearly it's not comprehensive, but the food scene has come an incredibly long way in the last decade.
