We Feel Fine
May 8, 2006 8:16 PM   Subscribe

We Feel Fine is an art project that finds sentences from blogs and stitches together a real-time picture of how the web community is feeling. The default visualization uses a particle system to show the most recent thousand feelings. You can also build your own set based on criteria, such as gender, age, or location. Click the heart menu and go to Mobs to watch the particles organize in impressive ways. The gestalt of the visualization is compelling, but the details are the best part. Some sample montages. Also see a related project, Love Lines, which uses the same API.

insanely awesome, I love the spinkly little emotion balls bouncing about the place. not to mention the outrageously clever way of presenting misery.

I didn't see "meh" as an emotion ball...

This is very cool.

Very cool.

By the way, the first time I clicked I got: "I'm pretty sure I'm not an unfuckable troll, but I'll be damned if it doesn't feel that way most of the time."

Very cool, thanks.

(By the way -- it works fine in Camino, so you can disregard that warning about Mac users if it's been screwing up in your Safari.)

Am I the only one who just can't get this to load? Firefox and IE both fail.
