11/6/15 My first three things….

1. Could you be a super-recogniser? My first thought is that maybe teachers have finely tuned skills in this area after years of facial sorting? (Pesky twins aside) If only we could put these mugshots into a seating plan we’d be sweet!

Anywho, try out the site below to see how your powers of facial observation stack up. Let me know how many you got…It’s not a competition but I got 10/14….had to guess a couple, but overall that’s a rank slightly below Sherlock Holmes but slightly above Kojak.


2. If you check out nothing else…check this out. A site that allows you to search for videos from big engines like Youtube and then removes ALL advertising and comments! What’s that? You scoff at this sites ability to filter out the advertising and the comments from ‘the madding crowd’? Go on then, take a look….I reckon you’ll bookmark this ‘un.


Begone, foul advertising!
Begone, foul advertising!

3. Last, but not least, is this unusal little site that takes any picture that you input and creates a meandering storyline based upon it. Well, it worked for a picture I put in of me running….it was strangely poetic whilst triggering thoughts of sweating up a hill.


Strange, and a little spooky

[word.camera uses convolutional neural networks to extract concept words from images. It expands those initial words (mostly nouns) into sentences and paragraphs using a lexical relationship database and a flexible template system]……..hmmm, it all makes sense now. 😉
