I’m a total sucker for a well-produced Year In Review. The highs, the lows, the adversity and the triumph, the moments that once moved us so deeply that now suddenly seem like distant memories… they always draw me in. The folks at Google have the most insightful tool in the world to draw upon for collecting the events that moved us. And so, check out the moments of 2011 that people were talking about.

The music track is “Sooner or Later,” by Mat Kearney… an excellent choice.
