December 20, 2012 1 comment

Futureseek Year in Review – Addition.
—————-
This list is generated really from the filtered millions scanned through the year onto the Futureseek daily feeds. the total tagged articles came in around 20k this year. From this raw list i selected about 1000 to go onto this list. This year’s list has a slightly more tech flavor, in final analysis. However if this isn’t enough for you try going through the raw links your itself and building your own tops list from the raw links; ( Raw Dump )

A look back at 2012 … …..
Merry Xmas.
