Dear ADS;

I'm usually a lurker, but thought you might want to take a look at this
site which was just pointed out to me by another Times researcher:

Trendio tracks the popularity of words in the news, and you can trade in
them, as in a stock exchange.
Condi Rice is currently down 27.5% and air crash is up 73.4%

Might be worth  a look. You do have to register.

Los Angeles Times, and he was a wonderful reporter.
