Google Year-End Interactive Zeitgeist
Google Interactive Zeitgeist 2004
Google has released its end of the year Zeitgeist for 2004, highlighting the top searches of the year, and in order to top everyone else's, Google's is interactive, made with Flash. Lots of interesting factoids and trivia bits (one day, you will be able to buy a Google Zeitgeist family game, mark my words), including lots of things you may have forgotten, or wish you had, including:
The South Beach diet
Howard Dean
Spalding Gray
Janet Jackson @ the Super Bowl

Comments:
December was a disappointment. Though I don't know what I was expecting.

Perhaps they should have waited until the end of the year to publish their year-end zeitgeist...
