How agile is your country?

Google’s new Trends service (which
appears to be the old Zeitgeist but now on
demand) allows you to find out what people are searching on.

I tried it with a number of different Microsoft agile terms and was surprised
at the results:

It is only a relative comparison without any real numbers or drilldown
capability so it is hard to read much into the results. However it seems
that other countries are searching for more Microsoft agile stuff than the
US. Is this a side effect of offshoring? Is this indicative of a
greater number of developers in these countries or just more developers with
time to search for new techniques? Hard to know but interesting
nonetheless.

    Did you notice how India seems to be at the top of the results all the time?
    Is this a bug?

    Is it due to the fact that only IT people have web access in India?
