Found this interesting piece while checking some screen pics of Google wifi (at the bottom of the article)

One of the projects involved blogging pigeons. Pigeons that had transponders and were collecting pollution & temperature data during the festival and sending the data to a live blog. Now since Google owns Blogger and there's a standing joke about Pigeon Rank, why in the heck didn't Google have anything to do with that project? Seems like a no-brainer to me but who knows?!

I'm sure the orignal author didn't mean this, but if pollution (which smells) = "rank" (ie a rank smell) and this information is collected by pigeons, you have Pigeon Rank :)-

[put at-character here]inferno – It was an April Fools joke. When I wrote this initially I was in a pretty sleep deprived state. Now that I'm looking at it again, it's not as funny :)-
