Like me, Canadians prefer Patriots over Giants this sunday (or so says Google data)

After a rough bought of food poisoning… I’m back.

For some random reasons I got a PR notice from the people at APEX communications in Toronto who Google insights to see which of the two Superbowl NFL teams Canadians were searching for more.

So… okay, just Canadians searched more for the Patriots doesn’t mean that they prefer them but as a hard core parts fan, that’s what I’m choosing to believe. It was, nonetheless, a great reminder that I should be checking out Google Insights more. I have, for example, noticed that the Globe and Mail has been using Google searches as a proxy for assessing the popularity of NDP leadership candidates. Going to try to think of a couple of interesting search querries I should set up… For example, I wonder how often people are searching for Open Government or Gov 2.0 and in which jurisdictions…

Go Pats!
