2015 Internet of Things Review: What Did Coloradans Google the Most?

January 1, 2016

Being a Colorado native, I hear stereotypes about Coloradans constantly; This only increased with the legalization of marijuana. So, according to those stereotypes, you would think we would Google things like  “legalization of weed” the most. Or, at least if we are a bunch of stoners, as many across the country think we are, we would be searching some pretty laid-back, superficial things. Like the blood moon, or Amy Schumer or “What does ‘bae’ mean?”.

But Coloradans are a bit more interested in serious manners than one might predict. Our top searches were: The Syrian War, Water on Mars, Mass shootings and the Keystone Pipeline.
