Johnathan Harris contacted me to use the image of Jesus in the entrance of Johns Hopkins Hospital for his upcoming book on feelings, “We Feel Fine.” The coolest thing about this is how he found the image. Johnathan is a computer guru that created a clever program that searches the world’s blogs (maybe the universe) for newly posted entries of the phrases “I feel” and “I am feeling.” He apparently found my post of Jesus on flickr because I wrote the phrase “I feel…” in the caption.
Go to wefeelfine and start the program. As feelings are harvested around the world they appear as streams of colored dots in a big-bang explosion of particles. Click on a dot and read the feeling, if an image is attached, it will appear too. The colors indicate the category of feeling, blue is sad for example and the size of the dot indicates the length of the text. If you have time, dig deeper for other ways he determines how the world is feeling at the moment.
