All of the “best of” and other such end-of-the-year lists for 2001 are starting to ooze out of various content-generating entities, both online and off. I’m a total sucker for such lists, can’t get enough of them. Even bad lists stimulate good conversation (“those choices sucked; these would have been much better: …”).
Here are some lists I’ve located so far: The Year in Ideas (NY Times); 2001 Person of the Year (Time); four Top 10 Movies lists from the NY Times: 01, 02, 03, 04; Coolest Space Science Images of 2001 (space.com); Science News of the Year (Science News); Best of the Web 2001 (PC World); 2001: The Year in Recordings (Rolling Stone); The Year in Sports (CNNSI.com); Most Censored Press Releases of 2001 (McSweeney’s); 2001 Inventions of the Year (Time); and Books of the Year (The Economist).
Have you run across any good best-of/end-of-the-year lists?
