How does 2007 feel like?

January 13th, 2007 by

I’ve used “We Feel Fine” ( exciting blog mining engine designed to scan blog posts for occurrences of the phrases “I feel” and “I am feeling”. Their data comes from a variety of online sources, including livejournal, MSN spaces, myspace, blogger, flickr, technorati, feedster, icerocket and google.
Until now, 6,545,330 feelings were collected from 1,521,540 unique people. Here are the most recent 50 “feeling” sentences as they were originally appeared in blogs:

This concept much resembles wefeelfine (which collects emotions from a much larger database of blogs), but seems? more friendly to research with. […]
