NEW YORK, July 13, 2015 — Five newsmakers from the tumultuous decade of the 2000s came together on stage last week to talk about their stories and promote the new documentary in which they all appear — “The 2000s: A New Reality.”

On hand were: Donato Dalrymple, the south Florida resident who gained fame as the man who plucked the young Cuban refugee, 6 year-old Elian Gonzalez, from the waters near Miami in 2000; Andy Grignon, part of the development team at Apple who created the iPhone; John Keller, ex-U.S. marine who saved lives during hurricane Katrina in New Orleans; Richard Hatch, famed winner of the first season of “Survivor” on CBS in summer 2000; and Sherron Watkins, brave whistleblower who told the world about the Enron mess.

Also on the panel: Jane Root, executive producer of “The 2000s,” and me, Adam Buckman, who moderated this incredible, wide-ranging discussion held July 8 at the Paley Center for Media in New York.
