Charting 2012’s Top Cultural Obsessions
You can’t talk 2012 without talking GIFs: the year’s cultural superstar, the Oxford American Dictionary’s word of the year, and the means by which the internet shared its obsessions (and we all know the internet really likes to obsess). From the GIF to politics to the apocalypse to Honey Boo Boo, the guys from I Love Charts bring you the year’s top cultural obsessions — in GIF form, of course.
Zombies
2012 was a year where major issues dominated the global narrative. Mainly we talked about the election and zombies.

Curious History:  The “Notificator”; A Vintage Form of Twitter, 1935
An article from Modern Mechanix advertises the “notificator”. Hand write a message, drop in a coin, and the message moves behind a glass panel remaining in view for a couple of hours for a friend to read.
Again the past predicts the future. Maybe the old adage “there is nothing new under the sun” really does hold true. The needs of society have always been the same. Its the technological developments that morph the form of how we fulfill those needs. So what’s after Twitter? Sending messages via brain implants? Technological telekinesis? We’ll know soon enough.
