3 Minutes' Silence in China
This is an astonishing example of how patterns of internet usage reflect everyday life.
3 minutes' silence was held in China at 2.28 on 19th May for the victims of the May 12th earthquake in Sichuan.
The chart shows that during this time the number of searches on Google fell dramatically, as people stopped what they were doing to pay respect.
