The creativity of humans unleashed on the internet never ceases to amaze me.

(Also the crassness, vulgarity, crudeness, stupidity, boringness [is that a word?], hatefulness and all those other deplorable traits, but today we're talking about creativity.)

We Feel Fine mines the feelings of bloggers from their posts, categorizes them by several metrics, and then presents them in intruiging ways. It sounds boring, but it isn't. You can read a better description on their Mission page, but the best thing is just to load the application and click around a little.

So, go get in touch with the feelings of the world today.

Wow, that is absolutely fascinating. I wonder how they stay updated. Do they have bots that comb through blogs and do this stuff? If so how do they know just the right peice of text to summarize the entry? It seems to me like they'd need to hire live people to do it. What do you think?
