Slackershot: LIsteningSo here’s a question for the MoC Community. I need a tool, similar to Google Insight or Ad Planner or whatever that can tell me what a demographic is thinking in a given time period.

For example, I want to know what college students searched for while on Spring Break. Right now, I have to use Trends or Insight and put in a bunch of terms like drunk, wet t-shirt, etc. and judge for myself which is the most popular – and I will probably guess wrong and miss the thing they were most searching for in that time, which was actually beer.

For example, I want to know what the hot topic was at the Inbound Marketing Summit on Twitter. Yes, there are plenty of Tweets to search through with the #ims08 hashtag, but a tool that summarized it and told me that Seth Godin was the top discussion would be useful.

What marketing tools do you know of that can do this?
