Everyone is creating a Google Instant spinoff. First Youtube instant, then Google maps instant (which is awesome), then iTunes instant, and so on and so forth. Truthfully I’m still not 100% sold on Google Instant, so I’m not sure I want to see this become a trend…

This week we’ve got a plethora of posts, ranging from Urchin Advanced Segments to designing for luxury brands, to what white people like.

  Miscellaneous links of the week:
  • I love OKTrends, the blog of OK Cupid’s Christian Rudder. For those who aren’t familiar with it, it takes data from OKCupids 3.5M members and uses that as a means of drawing conclusions about the US populace at large. This month, it’s “The REAL Stuff White People Like“, breaking interests down by both ethnicity and religion. Pretty interesting stuff, and, as always, funny as hell.
  • Finally Mashable has a collection of unofficial Google Instant services. These are amazing, such as Google maps instant (which feels incredibly CSI), and Google Images Instant (which isn’t exactly work safe, if you know what I mean…)
