    Highlights of the year 2012

    So what have been the highlights of the year 2012 for you both in the web design/development industries and in general?

    For me there is two:

    • Queen's Diamond Jubilee: She does well considering she's in her 80s.
    • 2012 London Olympics: Three weeks of the best sports men and women in the world competing in all them sports and the opening and closing ceremonies of them.

    Err... I can't remember of anything... which is kind of normal considering that I can't remember what I did yesterday or what I've eaten 5 min ago. And I don't pay much attention to TV and so I'm not that well informed...

    I can't even think of a personal highlight!

    Now, in the international aspect, I would consider the Olympic Games to be one

    That's a good point. They're forgotten too often. Although I guess that sometimes "Olympic Games" is a term that includes the whole thing, regular games and paralympics

    For me, a general highlight of last year was the Mars Rover landing, which I followed with great interest.
    The amount of technical challenges the engineers had to overcome was simply astounding.

    On a sillier note, Psy's "Gangnam Style" becoming the first video ever to hit a billion views on YouTube was pretty cool.
