Yes. I have noticed this myself. Just the other day I remember thinking, "wow, it's the year 2000! I wonder what I will be like in ten years". It seems like just yesterday. I still feel like I'm 18 (now 28). When I was younger, a year seemed to take forever. Now a year feels like three months, tops.

The rate at which information registers on our consciousness is accellerating and has been for quite some time. Technology is the reason as muzzleflash pointed out. But I think the overload factor has reached a tipping point and pulling us towards "evolutionary" increases in awareness.
Things happen faster in a larger world, now we find out about those things instantaneously, the occurrence of things that we notice is more frequent than our "short term memory" so we cognate more, which is the evolutionary aspect. But the absolute fact that over a billion people have access to worldwide events and the capability to share them with the rest is having an effect on us as a species.
