I came across this superb video recently. It’s a TED lecture given by Jonathan Harris, a computer scientist and artist based in Brooklyn, USA.
He talks about his project “We Feel Fine” which exquisitely uses technology to mine the world’s blogs collecting snapshots of the bloggers’ feelings and collectively the web’s emotions.
