A friend of mine helped me write a Python script that uses YAhoo'a API to find out how many times a particular keyword appears on the Web, Yahoo News and Yahoo podcast. It's fantastic. I am mainly using this for finding out the penetration of open source, so keywords include Linux, GNOME, Linux Ubuntu, OpenOffice, etc. The goal is to gather this data once or twice a week and see the trend over a quarter or so.
