one of the most enjoyable TED talks I’ve watched [casual fri]

ALL TED talks are amazing, but thee guys are particularly funny and their content is so interesting. The talk is about the advent of Culturomics, which is for culture what genomics is for human genetics. They reference a Google Tool that can analyze the words from 5 million of the books they have scanned into their system. You can play with it here. Enjoy the talk.
