Zombie Search

Now, I can't say as I really understand why, but the chaps and chapettes of the Oxford Internet Institute have plotted instances of people performing zombie-related internet searches on a map of the world. The results (see here) correlate pretty well with the English-speaking parts of the world. Which means, in the words of the report: "The results either provide a rough proxy for the amount of English-language content indexed over our planet, or offer an early warning into the geographies of the impending zombie apocalypse." I believe SnowBlog readers are particularly well equipped to judge for themselves which of those two possibilities is the most likely.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
