If only they had a board projecting all queries (including the non-safe ones), the government could go sit in their lobby and scribble furiously into a notebook for one week to get the data they want :)

Does anybody know how fast the querylist scrolls?

At 2.4 billion queries per 30 days (from Nov. 2005 estimates by Nielsen//Netratings), that works out to about 926 queries per second. I suppose the screen showing the "live" queries shows just a portion. Either that, or those shots were taken with a REALLY good camera.

no, a software filter the list, and "block" display some seconds :)

And Niraj is right : Bush & Co. should sit down in front of the screen and copy out.... :-)

Philipp, I don't think UTF-8 support is missing, but perhaps the fonts aren't installed on the projecting machine. I've seen that list in person, and there are many arabic, chinese, japanese and hebrew searches that are displayed.

The projector shows old data, and is of course, very filtered. This list scrolls pretty slowly, like perhaps 1-2 new entries per second.

BTW, the idea that Google gets only 2.4B queries per month is baloney. I talk about that here:

That number is Nielsen and comScore's US estimate, and it's wrong on the very low side.

One of the two people involved in "24 Hours of TV" this weekend works at Google.

And you, um, didn't hear that from me.

Kevin Fox shows proof the screen is UTF-8 enabled... see the post for the update :)
