Google Zeitgeist 2005

_ Google Press Center: Zeitgeist

It turns out that looking at the aggregation of billions of search queries people type into Google reveals something about our curiosity, our thirst for news, and perhaps even our desires. Considering all that has occurred in 2005, we thought it would be interesting to study just a few of the significant events, and names that make this a memorable year. (We’ll leave it to the historians to determine which ones are lasting and which ephemeral.) We hope you enjoy this selective view of our collective year.

Makes for some pretty interesting reading… Notice how Wikipedia has grown steadily, whilst podcasting hasn’t yet reached it’s tipping point.

Hat tip: Damien
