Here are some fun facts from Google, they have just released the 2005 Zeitgeist which gives us a nice overview of the year we have just endured.
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.
The zeitgeist this year is well designed, and fun to dig into. It separates the statistics into categories like world affairs, nature, movies, celebrities and phenomena. Each contain some really great information based on searches that were performed using the Google search engine.
