I got an email from Google today. Just to me! I feel like a celebrity. Google analyst Jake Parrillo wanted to let me know that Portland is the city with the most people looking for Occupy Wall Street news of any city in the country. Even more than New York!

Here's their list of cities most frantically Googling "occupy wall street" and related terms:


Parrillo explained that the numbers of searches are normalized. So, while the absolute number of New Yorkers searching for "occupy" may be higher, out of all the searches Portlanders are doing, we have the most that are for Occupy. That's pretty cool. We're a city of occupy news hounds.
