How Do You Feel?

In Ten Ways To Make A Difference, Peter Singer outlines pragmatic ways to create change. The first step he says is to have your finger on the pulse of the public. Know how people are feeling today, and how they could possible feel tommorow. Understand the people.

Now this is no easy task, but one cool tool that I just found can help. It’s called We Feel Fine. Using just a java applet, this site scans blogs for “I feel” and “I am feeling” and displays the results in several cool interactive methods.

The top results?
1. Better (128,000 people)
2. Bad (93k)
3. Good (76k)
4. Right (41k)
5. Guilty (32k)
6. Sick (27k)
7. Same (25k)
8. Shit (25K)
9. Sorry (24k)
10. Well (22k)
..
13. Happy (18k)

18. Lost (14k)

36. Loved (3k)

The list goes on for a long time, with a lot of adjectives and descriptors.

The Takeaway: However you are feeling, someone else is feeling the same way, and many of them are feeling better.
