December is just beginning, but numerous best-ofs already made their appearance. Here are some of them:
• ‘Twitter’ is the most used word in the English language-speaking world for 2009, with ‘Obama’ and ‘H1N1′ (politically correct name for ‘Swine Flu’) following close by. The same Global Language Monitor presented ‘King of Pop’ as top phrase of 2009. (via 5 Blogs Before Lunch);
• Youtube’s most popular videos in 2009;
• At Pitchfork those musical aspects of the decade fell under review;
• Also, Richard Brody of The New Yorker presents us with a list of the best movies of the past decade.
To be continued.
• First-ever Twitter Zeitgeist was released a few days ago;
• The guys at The Auteurs complied a list of best movie posters of the past decade especially for cinephiles. The Death of Mr. Lazarescu makes the top ten list, accompanied by an entitled critique.
• What Matters Now – free ebook compiled by Seth Godin with contributions of more than seventy thinkers of today;
• Another sort of intellectual nourishment I highly recommend: Most Contagious report for 2009, reviewing most hyped marketing trends in the last twelve months;
• A rather different type of best-of: Discover Mag’s fabulous list of top ten astronomy pictures of the year
