Google's zeitgeist: year in review (video)

By Melissa Bell

It's that time of the year, when we take the arbitrary day chosen to mark the end of the year and celebrate it with end of year wrap-ups, lists and reviews. It's the collective attempt to suss out just what 2010 meant. Google kicks off the melee with its Zeitgeist search review to show the world as it searched for itself. The Zeitgeist collects the most popular and fastest rising queries of the year, collecting the spurts of interest in the events, people, and trends that captured our attention.

To go along with its search roundup, Google created a video summing up the highs and lows of the year. It taps on all the right emotional keys. (And I'm not just saying that because The Washington Post makes a cameo.)

(Dedicating this post to Justin.)
