Another year has come to an end, and 2011 will surely be one to remember. From Google's algorithm changes to the loss of some search referral data, the launch of Google Plus and the +1 button (hey, there was a lot of news from Google) to the loss of Steve Jobs. Ecommerce continues to be defined by the way consumers use technology, and no doubt, 2012 will bring further advancement and a few surprises. As we do every year, here are some of our favorite posts from Get Elastic from January through December.
