2004 Year-End Google Zeitgeist
The Google Zeitgeist was released yesterday. This yearly ritual indicates the top searches in the different categories of search provided by Google. The number one search term for the year 2004 was "britney spears". Interesting....
It was also amusing to see that number two in the 'Popular Tech stuff' category was "kazaa" and number four was "spybot". This must definitely indicate that almost everybody who installed the spyware infested Kazaa immediately felt the need for Spybot.
The Zeitgeist would have been much more interesting if Google had also mentioned the actual number of times each term was searched for.
