A view into the Internet's Brain

Lookie over there to the right - "Google Hot Trends". It shows an up-to-the date list of the top google searches at the time. I find it endlessly fascinating, since to view this list is to see precisely what the "internet" is "thinking". Fer instance, of no great import but revelatory of the phenomena, this past Saturday night, at about 7PM, the top four searches listed were some derivation of "what channels the Cowboy's game on?". A few hours later, once the game was underway, those searches disappeared.

You may say: So what? And I would answer: Are you sure you're on the right blog?
