Interests in the new world

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Here is Weibo’s “interest picker”. I believe there’s a lot that can be gleaned from this (or maybe you can learn Chinese from it?). I’m a little bit sad Horoscopes is an interest area, though I’m not sure if it’s bigger in China or America (who came up with it anyway?). Did you know Military […]

My life in Google searches

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

  Since it’s the end of a month, I thought it’d be convenient to look through my Google search stats. The graphs here are for my past 365 days of Googling, so March 2010-11.
