Last year, especially for Christmas, the 76-Second Travel Show tracked a surprising surge in the usage of the word 'robust' on both sides of the Atlantic:
A year later, we're noticing the trend in the US has continued its spike upward.
The New York Times rose from over 900 usages of 'robust' in 2009 to over 1400 (1406 as of Dec 23, including online references), while the UK's Guardian dropped slightly to 1885.
Does that say the UK is over robust, while the US is just getting started?
Either way, 76 Studios is looking forward to a very robust 2011.
