In year’s past, I’ve seen lots of postings and links to various year-end lists. For some reason this year I haven’t seen so many. In fact, the only highly publicized one I’ve seen is the Google Zeitgeist 2007. They have a section of their site where they show stats throughout the year, but then they have their full year-end listing:
We’re bidding adieu to 2007 with a look back at the breaking news, the big events and the must-have gadgets that captivated us this year (give or take a few weeks; we compile this list by early December). To get a glimpse of what’s been on our collective consciousness, we mined billions of search queries to discover what sorts of things rose to the top. We encourage you to check out our findings to see if you, too, reflect the zeitgeist — the spirit of the times.
