We have data, now what?
Google is amassing huge amounts of information - but information with no analysis is just storage. Cool systems to interpret all the info are needed:
Google Trends: An interesting application, developed in the Google Labs, where a display presents the history of a search term over time. Type in "Jeopardy" to see historical high peaks of searching!
Google Ngram: An amazing tool that displays the individual popularity
of two words over a timeline. It is based on the amount of times the words have been mentioned in the books Google has digitized - and they have digitized millions of them! Pit horse against car to see when one waxes and one wanes!
Cool Tip - try it out!
