    Google Trends

    Who has seen this one? I'm unclear on what information this is conveying. Of course, I typed Cyburbia first. Nothing. Lots on Urban Planning. I'll spend some more time on this.

    It appears to show how often (whatever term you enter) gets mentioned in news stories over time.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Interestingly enough, the first two cities on this list have prisons

    I found it interesting to put in one of my project that is kinda controversial. Interesting the international level.

    Based on your search, that explains why they called it Rockwell City.
