Ajax and Web 2.0 high in the Zeitgeist of 2006

Category: Fun

As we come to the end of 2006, we see that Ajax and Web 2.0 are high up on the Google Zietgeist for 2006.

  1. define promiscuous
  2. define web 2.0
  3. define ftw
  4. define calidad
  5. define ajax
  6. define ensayo
  7. define ciencia
  8. define administracion
  9. define harlequin
  10. define filosofia

Since this is the define list, does it mean people have no glue what this means? It is hard to know what to make of it based on the other entrants on the list too.

Anyway, it has been a great year for Ajax, and we look forward to the maturation of the space in 2007.

Well… you have to take in account that Ajax might be so high in the list because it points more than one subject.

For example, Ajax is also a footbal(soccer)-club in The Netherlands, a cleansing product and an old Greek mythological hero.

So I would pay more attention to the web 2.0 in that list, because it is clear what people meant with that.

I’d go ahead and put web 2.0 at the top, since virtually every search for promiscuous would have been a 10-15 year old trying to figure out what Nelly was talking about.

well according to the author’s article, and the list of words, no one knows how to spell…

Zietgeist != Zeitgeist
glue != clue
