Google Zeitgeist 2012

Tis the season for annual wrap ups and best of lists.  In my (extremely biased) opinion nobody does it better than Google with their annual Zeitgeist video and dedicated site.

The website allows you explore what was popular in 2012 through various searches, images as well as providing breakouts by country and categories such as TV shows, films, athletes, etc.  It's amazing to me how quickly I forget what was big news during the year, so it was a revelation to spend some time playing around on the site and exploring the year that was 2012.  Head on over to Google Zeitgeist 2012 to explore.

As in past years there is also a moving video and emotionally evocative video that recaps the year as Google sees it.  Check it out below.
