Google Trends: a tech wonder

17 09 2008

Google Trends is a really cool way to see what the world is thinking right now or at one time.. and even for specific search terms!

Google Hot Trends

Quoting wikipedia: “is a tool from Google Labs that shows the most popularly searched terms from the beginning of 2004 to now”

…try it now.. (e.g. http://www.google.com/trends?q=saudi)

Ready.gov and its parody

16 09 2008

The US Government has this specia site:

http://www.ready.gov/

and some one is making fun of it:

http://www.safenow.org/

Sample:

Try to absorb as much of the radiation as possible with your groin region. The current world record is 5 minutes, 12 seconds.

and this one is really something:

Watch out for people who come out of white tents and try to steal the shirt off your back.

Great web design for ready.gov, though… 🙂
