My New Favorite Find --- We Feel Fine

I’m fascinated … I’m spellbound … I’m totally enthralled with this site … We Feel Fine

We Feel Fine is an exploration of human emotion on a global scale.
Since August 2005, We Feel Fine has been harvesting human feelings from a large number of weblogs. Every few minutes, the system searches the world's newly posted blog entries for occurrences of the phrases "I feel" and "I am feeling". When it finds such a phrase, it records the full sentence, up to the period, and identifies the "feeling" expressed in that sentence (e.g. sad, happy, depressed, etc.). Because blogs are structured in largely standard ways, the age, gender, and geographical location of the author can often be extracted and saved along with the sentence, as can the local weather conditions at the time the sentence was written. All of this information is saved.

Here’s the stats of what they’ve gathered so far … 3.4 million feeling from close to 1 million people see more here.

Go check it out for yourself --- but be careful, it’s addicting! :)

BTW: circles are text, squares are photos. Also be sure to check out the options on the red navigation bar at the top as well as Montage, Murmurs, Mobs etc in the corner.
