Google Autocomplete: Why is [state name] …?

More autocomplete maps


Sort of self-explanatory, but quick key:

purple: google has no autocomplete on the two Dakotas.

orange-like: unique (questionable on Colorado, true)

brown: I genuinely thought there will be more sports-related autocompletes, but nope. Kind of redundant.

pink: adjectives

green: same story with brown.

Color selection was random indeed.

Definitely not the best or most entertaining map out there, but for a non-American, it was interesting to compile.

Also unoriginal, there was a similar map couple of days ago.

An Interactive Map of the Global Sharing Economy

The Sharing Economy has exploded into life over the past 12 months. Technological developments are allowing people to share more goods, skills and services than ever before, and new business models are springing up all around the world.

In the UK alone, an estimated 25% of people already take part in this type of sharing online, and current global revenues of around £9bn could reach £230bn per year by 2025.

Spurred on by this growth, the team at Love Home Swap has created a map of the most exciting Sharing Economy companies around the world - from carpooling in Cairo to skill-sharing in Sydney – and the business leaders behind them.
