Year in Search 2014

It’s that time of year again!  Google is out with its review of what people searched for in 2014.  These things are pure genius on Google’s part; not only are they great advertisements, they’re moving tributes to the events of the past year.  The editing is superb, and while they couldn’t fit everything in, they did a great job of capturing the spirit of 2014.

One difference this year – they changed the name.  Previous year end videos were called “Google Zeitgeist.”  They probably dropped it because no one knew what the hell that means.  A quick check of good ‘ole Merriam-Webster tells us “Zeitgeist” means “the general intellectual, moral, and cultural climate of an era.”  Well that makes sense.  Anyway, I think I like the 2013 edition a little bit better, but you be the judge!
