Lexicalist calls itself a demographic dictionary of modern american english. What it does is analyse millions of words in online chatter on blogs, Twitter and other social networking sites and spews out information about who's using a certain word or keyword - breaking information down to age, gender and geography in the US (They also have a China version.)

So a Lexicalist report on Steve Jobs (screengrab below) shows that - in the US and on average - currently one (or more correctly two) in every 2563 words mentioned online is "Steve Jobs", with men aged upwards of 45 dominating mentions.
