Google launches meme tracker

Techcrunch (and Google’s blog) reported today that Google launched a new blog tracker and search site.

I often look at Digg or Yahoo‘s “top search” box on Yahoo’s home page to get a sense of what people are talking about, looking for, etc. Digg may have a delayed effect and Yahoo’s result may be more mainstream than what interests me?

Will see if Google’s new site surfaces timely and relevant stories or themes “before the masses” and/or at the same time as Drudge (which acts as a proxy for mainstream media).
