The Collective Emotional Temperature of the World

A while back I posted about Twistori, completely missing the fact that it was inspired by We Feel Fine. While Twistori pulls statements from Twitter and scrolls them based on words used like "Love" and "Hate", We Feel Fine is a much more elaborate and comprehensive gauge. Pulling from statements across the blog-o-sphere that start with "I feel..." and "I am Feeling...", it creates abstract patterns and graphs which require viewer interaction. I'm not sure if this means we need more help in being empathetic with each other or we've settled on being entertained by each others feelings. My experience with human nature and our current cultural trends tells me the latter is more often the case.
