The Google Zeitgeist for 2004 is up. It’s an interesting cultural snapshot, as it outlines the most popular Internet searches for the year. Google has become a verb; if you need to learn about something, Google it. Etc.
Some of the results were surprising; of course the top 4 entries are robotic babes; britney spears, paris hilton, christina aguilera, pamela anderson.
In Tech Stuff, linux was #5, behind wallpaper at #1 and filesharing topics (kazaa and mp3).

It’s good to see that people are paying attention to this most important case.
