For the past nine months, We Feel Fine has been collecting data on human feelings and emotions on the internet. There are some great metrics on the site, both static and dynamic (click on "metrics" or "mounds" from the site’s nav).
From the past few hours, the greatest incidence of posts appear to be from people feeling hungry, low and off, mostly women ages 50 – 59, in snowy Victoria, Australia. Hmm…
From the site: "There is no human involvement in We Feel Fine. The system runs
autonomously, collecting and presenting data about human feelings."
How long before someone creates an app that dreams of electric sheep, too?
