Two for Tuesday 2-12-08

1. Happy Valentines Day. In the spirit of Valentines Day, check out WeFeelFine.org :
"Since August 2005, We Feel Fine has been harvesting human feelings from a large number of weblogs. Every few minutes, the system searches the world's newly posted blog entries for occurrences of the phrases "I feel" and "I am feeling"... The result is a database of several million human feelings, increasing by 15,000 - 20,000 new feelings per day."
The applet on this Website provides several different graphical interfaces that represent how people are feeling around the world. You can break these out by gender and age. This could be a great resource for found poetry! Darren Draper shared this on Twitter in December. I've been waiting until Valentines season to share it with you. How are you feeling?

You have to see it to understand it, so here is a quick look at the site:

2. Take a Vacation: For those of us about to be on winter break, it isn't too late get away. SideStep is a robust travel search engine that searches over 200 travel websites for the best airfares, and hotel rates. You can sort your results by, price, airline, airport, time of departure, and time of arrival. It is pretty amazing. Wishing I was heading someplace warm...
