Google Trends is a great tool for understanding the current search zeitgeist and how it breaks out geographically. However it is not without its peculiarities.
According to these screenshots, Apex, NC is far and away the center of in refinance and antiaging searches on the internet.
But Apex is just a small town in North Carolina. What is going on, Google?

Below, I am seeing this with many google local searches, where the website associated with a listing clearly doesn't match the listed business. I am interested in any theories as to how google associates these websites to the listed businesses.

The buzz over .mobi is just another indication of where we're headed. Even now, the concept of "cyberspace" (sounds so 1993), for most people is limited to sitting at desktop or laptop, staring at a screen. How will 2007, 2008 begin to look, as we begin to get unteathered....an Ipod that's always online (rumored to be in development by Microsoft)? Adsense served to mobile phones based on next generation Dodgeball GPS type platform? more than likely.

Wikipedia is such a great analogy for our current take on "truth". As soon as The New York Times and other media outlets announced this morning of the untimely death of Kenneth Lay, conspiracy abounded, virus like - across the internet. Every blogger had a theory. Later that day Reuters
published an interesting article about how Lay's biography in Wikipedia was modified scores of times throughout the day, colaboratively limping its way to some sort of definitive conclusion.
