“I still haven’t found what I’m looking for” are words from a classic U2 song , and it seems to represent what drives millions of people who search on Google, Yahoo and other search engines, looking for information, ideas, other people, money, sex, music, images, videos, clothes, books and so much more. In many ways its like a record of thoughts of humanity, striving to find something we want, and mostly its what will make us happy or entertain us for a little while more.

Google’s 2007 Top search list was:

1. iphone – The phone of all phones (more than 17 million pages in the results list)
2. webkinz – The kid’s stuffed animal that comes alive online in Webkinz World (6 million pages)
3. tmz – Entertainment news and celebrity gossip (780 thousand pages)
4. transformers – the movie about transforming robots (2.4 million pages)
5. youtube – hosts user created videos (32 million pages)
6. club penguin – a safe virtual world for kids to play, interact with friends (3.2 million pages)
7. myspace – social networking with forums, communities, videos and blogging (25 million pages)
8. heroes – hit TV show with super heroes (19 million pages)
9. facebook – another top social networking site (29 million pages)
10. anna nicole smith – a former Playmate of the Year and reality show host who died aged 39 (700 thousand pages)

So to summarize what we’re all looking for:
A cool phone, Entertainment for kids and grown ups, social networking, and some racy pictures.
Or even more summarized:
Communication and entertainment

The 2006 top list was quite different:

bebo – social networking
myspace – social networking
world cup -soccer
metacafe – videos
radioblog – music and video downloads
wikipedia – encyclopedia
rebelde -teenages Mexican soap opera
mininova – movie download site
wiki -encyclopedia

But when you summarize it, it still boils down to:
Communication and entertainment

And since entertainment is a form of communication, ultimately we are searching for Communication and the picture on this post represents the ultimate communication tool.

In a short few years, blogging has grown into a huge social and business activity. Its become so simple to set one up, that thousands of new blogs are created every day and millions exist across the net. But the fact that everyone can publish instantly, or make a video, or music track, or photograph, and make it available to anyone across the world, doesn’t make it any easier to create good or great content. In fact the proliferation of poor content bombarding everybody, everyday on the net, is actually making it more difficult for potentially good content to get visibility. Whatever about the millions of personal journals online, business blogging has become an crucially important marketing tool.

arctic cc podknox

The Earth is like a balding man – its loosing it on top, a little more every year until finally one day and its all gone. When we talk about the shrinking Arctic icecap we think, hey, a little loss around the edges, so what? Well now it looks like that loss is much more and progressing faster than previously thought. In fact researchers are predicting that by 2030 the Arctic will be ice-free at certain times of the year.
