Here at Xmarks we are true believers in "the wisdom of crowds". Our servers analyze the 1.5 million new bookmarks that arrive each day and algorithmically generate a list of the most popular topics bookmarked by our users. We can trust no one bookmark to foreshadow a trend. Instead we aggregate millions of bookmarks into a Syndicate in order to uncover a glimpse of the future.

If you think this is cause for alarm, be sure to consult our topic page on Survival for great preparedness resources.
