More fun with Google Autofill

So last year I asked y'all to search for "ground..." and see what came up on your Google autofill feature. The results were pretty interesting, and when I showed them to my class, they thought they were pretty interesting, too, and it made a nice little lesson in how place matters in the digital era. :)

Academics being academics, someone has decided to do a more rigorous study of this phenomenon. So if any of you need to kill some time, they're looking to produce an Autocomplete map of the world based on how Google autofills the names of the countries of the world. AKA "crowdsourcing the geography of autocomplete". Take a look!
