The University of Amsterdam funded a study regarding Internet blogs (such as this one, I guess). Many important things have been discovered, such as:
- People are more drunk at week-ends than in regular weekdays
- People talk more about Harry Potter when a new book comes out
Besides the obviousness of these discoveries, I'm really wondering why public money has to be wasted in funding this kind of researches. However, it's not enough: even the important British magazine New Scientist devoted an article to this research.
