One of the most interesting behind-the-scenes aspects of SpeakSpeak’s site is the record of searches users have performed. Many are predictable (”indecency,” “bozell,” “ptc”). Some are baffling. (One user is determined to find information about the architecture of a building in Chicago. If it’s you, drop me a line; I’m really curious.)

And yesterday, over 100 people searched for information on Alysha Cosby, the pregnant Alabama high school senior who attended her own high school graduation — in defiance of her school’s orders to stay hidden.

Because she apparently struck a chord, here’s a roundup of reports and discussion about the heroic Alabama girl.
