“We Feel Fine” isn’t new, but I think it’s a nice way to end the year. If you’re unfamiliar with the website, here’s a good description:
Every few minutes, [WE FEEL FINE] 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…. The result is a database of several million human feelings, increasing by 15,000 – 20,000 new feelings per day. (Eyebeam.org)
Just click the big pink heart to start. (FYI, I like the “Murmurs” and the “Mounds” applications, but wander around–it’s all pretty nifty.)
And obviously: happy New Year, y’all.
