Paris 2007, a popularity meter

Tim Schwartz made clever use of an old indicator dial with his piece Paris, 2007. He is using an embedded system to monitor realtime search patterns, in order to determine which Paris is more popular. The meter is constantly updated to show the latest results. It sounds like a pretty fun project to attempt. Anyone know how to get a realtime feed of people’s search patterns? [via core77]
