We Feel Fine

We Feel Fine is an exploration of human emotion, a type of visualization for Big Data.

It continually harvests sentences containing the phrase “I feel” or “I am feeling” from the Internet’s newly posted blog entries, saves them in a database, and displays them in an interactive Java applet, which runs in a web browser. The color of each dot corresponds to the type of feeling it represents and the diameter of each dot indicates the length of the sentence inside. Demographic information (age, gender, location, and weather) is also collected and displayed.
