Zeitgeist

What does it mean? Where did it come from? Why is it on Instructables?

It's German (or, at any rate the WORD is German.)
  • "Zeit" == time.
  • "Geist" == spirit.
So literally "spirit of the time"; more colloquially similar to "what's hot", where "hot" is not quite the same as "popular" or "excellent."

i.e. those are the projects getting talked about / commented on at the moment.
