Crushed out on Google's Flu Trends

I love Google a little bit too much, especially considering that they are a ginormous corporation whose activities have major implications for privacy.

Yet, when they release something like Flu Trends (and note the .org address), I can't help but love them more! It's like having an inappropriate crush that you just can't let go.

(And no, this isn't directly related to fundraising, but as promised, this blog also concerns general nerdy things -- especially those related to data.)
