2020

Google’s “Year in Search” for 2020

Just in case you didn’t know it, 2020 has been a pretty trying year on so many levels. So much has happened in the last 12 months that it is easy to forget some of what we have all been through. Each year Google puts out their “Year in Search” video which curates visuals associated with the most dominant trend in search, and this year the trend was “why?”.

Google captures 2020 in 3 minutes and reminds all of us that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and that while this year has been rough, to say the least, there is a reason to keep going. Here’s to 2021 and a better year ahead.

Forget 2020 for 5 Minutes.

If the state of 2020 has got you down, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it has, take 5 minutes out of your day and watch the video below. Created by the New Yorker this is one of the many documentary shorts that they have on Vimeo. This one focuses on the collection of artifacts that the New York Public Library owns. The collection is fascinating, and a bit odd. The video is extremely well made and for 5 minutes you don’t have to think about what a completely awful year 2020 has been in so many ways
