There’s a fascinating story going the rounds, (including ths version at the NYTimes – free registration required), on Google’s increasing ocean of information about the world’s population. Remember those stories about the National Grid folk reading the Radio Times to predict likely kettle usage? Similar stuff, only much more fine-grained.

Fascinating, if not slightly scary in a ‘big brother’ sort of way. Be careful what you search for.
