What were we thinking?
There's no better time than the present...to think about the immediate past. Three major search engines Google, Yahoo, and Lycos have all published their year-end stats on what we searched for in 2002. You can find these amazing sites at http://www.google.com/press/zeitgeist.html, http://yir.yahoo.com, and http://50.lycos.com.
Go ahead, look back at what the web-searching world cared about in 2002. Draw your own conclusions.
