The decline of culture (as a search term)

A neat auto-generated chart from Google Trends … is the downward trend suggestive that people are less interested in culture, or that, as the web becomes ever larger, people are realizing it’s just too vague a search term. The yearly slumps in searches correspond to midsummer and late December, times when Americans at least are too busy with other cultural activities to spend their time googling.
