It’s that time again…and you can expect an avalanche of “Top 10″ (or perhaps “Top 13″ to be clever and tie it into 2013) lists of this year’s most talked about/most interesting/most outrageous//most important/whatever people, news stories, and events of 2013.
While not perfect (what is, after all?), I thought this graphic did a pretty good job of capturing the most talked-about events of 2013.by beutlerink. Explore more infographics like this one on the web’s largest information design community – Visually.
I’m not sure I would have included Lou Reed or House of Cards, but Arrested Development, Orange Is the New Black (in spite of not watching a single episode yet — I tend to wait til a critically acclaimed series is about to end before I watch it), and Breaking Bad? They definitely belong on there. As do Miley Cyrus and Daft Punk and the Playstation 4 and Candy Crush and Pope Francis, to name a handful.
But there’s a whole lot more that “went down” in 2013, such as Instagram (I’m here, by the way) and Vine (I’m not there, by the way). How about The Daily Show with John Oliver? And Anchorman 2?
Then there’s Yahoo and tumblr (which I never seem to use but keep meaning to)…and a whole lot more.
What about you? Which events of 2013 were game-changers for you?
