When Am I most active

This pattern from Google search history collected over a period of 9 months gave me a good chance to analyze what time I'm most active.



FYI this data is collected by Google Search History You need to login to your google account while searching for your searches to be logged to their servers. Google people are getting too deep into analytics of late, last year they acquired a major analytics company, Urchin, Now this should redirect to the Google analytics page. Interested thing is Google is ready to give the power of analytics to the entire world free, which used to cost $299, when it was Urchin.

So much of Data Center power is giving Google to analyse and organise world information, this is really awesome information for the world to see. But is the information in good hands, will it continue remaining in good hands, how much is this kind of statistics going to make the world better, will it change our online behaviour, how are the intelligence agencies, say CIA connected to Google. If we have so much of statistics to see, how much of statistics is available internal to Google.

So many Qs ... my fav quote again ... Time will answer.

The NSA reading private contents is now a big issue here.
The point to note is that, there is a huge cry againt NSA eavesdropping in Domestic communication. Everybody has taken it for granted that NSA has all the powers to peek into any non-Domestic content.

Even this comment could now be scrutinized by the NSA ;)

google sure is making waves with its tools ....y do u think giving info to public is dangerous ? may be the google earth thing abt images abt sensitives govt stations is one reason ..but otherwise how bad is it ?

Saravana Kumar said...

Deepak - all official searches da ;)

hmm TJ true - There's no privacy on internet. Even blogger blocks publishing through all known public proxies and tunnels.

jagan - think of it this way. Google now has email alerts, they can send you the search queries right into your email box. So NSA or CIA could now have a complex search query to identify suspicious activity not only on the internet but can also be extended to services like orkut, gmail, google groups, base and host of other services. these informations are available internal to google, might be to NSA, CIA. Even now this post could be tracked using a simple query such as ["google" "CIA"] and as soon as crawled sent an email to the research dept.

One of the greatest contributions of India to the world is Holy Gita which is considered to be one of the first revelations from God. The management lessons in this holy book were brought in to light of the world by divine Maharshi Mahesh Yogi and Sri Sri RaviShankar, and the spiritual philosophy by Sr. Srila Prabhupada Swami and humanism by Mata Amritanandamayi Devi and Satya Sai Baba. Maharishi calls the Bhagavad-Gita the essence of Vedic Literature and a complete guide to practical life. It provides "all that is needed to raise the consciousness of man to the highest possible level." Maharishi reveals the deep, universal truths of life that speak to the needs and aspirations of everyone. Arjuna got mentally depressed when he saw his relatives with whom he has to fight.( Mental health has become a major international public health concern now). To motivate him the Bhagavad Gita is preached in the battle field Kurukshetra by Lord Krishna to Arjuna as a counseling to do his duty while multitudes of men stood by waiting. It has got all the management tactics to achieve the mental equilibrium and to overcome any crisis situation. The Bhagavad Gita can be experienced as a powerful catalyst for transformation. Bhagavad gita means song of the Spirit, song of the Lord. The Holy Gita has become a secret driving force behind the unfoldment of one's life. In the days of doubt this divine book will support all spiritual searches. This divine book will contribute to self reflection, finer feeling and deepen one's inner process. Then life in the world can become a real education—dynamic, full and joyful—no matter what the circumstance. May the wisdom of loving consciousness ever guide us on our journey? What makes the Holy Gita a practical psychology of transformation is that it offers us the tools to connect with our deepest intangible essence and we must learn to participate in the battle of life with right knowledge?

The Holy Gita is the essence of the Vedas, Upanishads. It is a universal scripture applicable to people of all temperaments and for all times. It is a book with sublime thoughts and practical instructions on Yoga, Devotion, Vedanta and Action. It is profound in thought and sublime in heights of vision. It brings peace and solace to souls that are afflicted by the three fires of mortal existence, namely, afflictions caused by one's own body (disease etc), those caused by beings around one (e.g. wild animals, snakes etc.), and those caused by the gods (natural disasters, earth-quakes, floods etc).

Mind can be one's friend or enemy. Mind is the cause for both bondage and liberation. The word mind is derived from man to think and the word man derived from manu (sanskrit word for man).

"The Supreme Lord is situated in everyone's heart, O Arjuna, and is directing the wanderings of all living entities, who are seated as on a machine, made of the material energy."

There is no theory to be internalized and applied in this psychology. Ancient practices spontaneously induce what each person needs as the individual and the universal coincide. The work proceeds through intellectual knowledge of the playing field (jnana yoga), emotional devotion to the ideal (bhakti yoga) and right action that includes both feeling and knowledge(karma yoga). With ongoing purification we approach wisdom. The Bhagavad Gita is a message addressed to each and every human individual to help him or her to solve the vexing problem of overcoming the present and progressing towards a bright future. Within its eighteen chapters is revealed a human drama. This is the experience of everyone in this world, the drama of the ascent of man from a state of utter dejection, sorrow and total breakdown and hopelessness to a state of perfect understanding, clarity, renewed strength and triumph.


Mind is very restless, forceful and strong, O Krishna, it is more difficult to control the mind than to control the wind ~ Arjuna to Sri Krishna
