Auto Tagging, Ojos and the Rise of the Participatory Panopticon

November 10, 2005

The Social Software Weblog points to an inspired new business idea – Ojos (not yet in beta) will auto-tag your digital photos using face and text recognition: Auto Tagging, Ojos and the Rise of the Participatory Panopticon

Yeah, mass content. We better invent some way to sort all the data. Could make a million in a lifetime. If they dont vanish on the hard disk it’s a lot more fun to make em to.

We can already add voice memos to each image. Not a bad idea to actually use that now that I think of it. First make a picture of a person then have em record a memo. Would make a nice looking blog. Text to speech is probably better raw data to auto-tag with.

I imagine we could look at a tag cloud before we see a movie one day.

Mashable Says:

Absolutely. That reminds of a comment I read somewhere: in the future, a wife turns to her husband and says “Honey, where’d we put 2012??.

My point with auto-tagging is that at some point there will be too much info to simply tag it ourselves. I’ve been using GMail a lot recently, and it does a great job of filing away mails without you having to label them at all. Of course, you could set up predefined filters on your mini video camera (if that’s what we’re all carrying in a few years time) for certain faces, places or objects, just like you can with GMail. That way your entire life would be indexing without much effort at all…

Yes, LOL google search works perfectly.

I was just creating an opera browser session. I’m going to sort my surfing in separate windows by subject.

The subject was rss tags and OPML. Of course this blog post will be a part of it.

After this one I’m going to create a window with social bookmark sites. lol

Opera also saves the state of the window toolbar set up with the session, if a session has a lot of tabs I have no need for the toolbars. Can set the tabs at the side or have something that looks like a gmail application. LOL

From a business or a collectors point of view this sorting of our life shall add tremendous value. I’m sure this blog post is as good a place as a forum or email exchange.

One day we will share our personal data and images and the web archive will crawl and backup our whole hardisk, just because they can.

Our global artilect of automatically generated linkage is also growing. We could not begin to imagine what intellectual boost it could present globally.

I’ve seen a few learning games and must honestly say I didn’t think they could make it so fun jet so educative. I’ve also spotted that tutorials are becoming more amusing by the day. Or maybe I’m just less funny as I was. hehe

Life is great! We dont need Windows Vista

November 4, 2005

Image hosted by Photobucket.comWe can assume Microsoft would not make organizing files dramatically better we get many of the same features with better indexing of files, rather than moving to a whole new database structure we will suffer using the old shit some more. Bill gates has spoken! AMEN!

vista will run on old PCs. That will end everything! It’s going to look and run quite differently on those older systems. As if users of older PC’s should not miss out on new features! They are nuts! Vista does need a whole new PC BUT as it runs applications developed for win-XP it wont be interesting to write new things for it. It means ERRORS generated by different platforms, specially the older platforms will have tremendous errors Programmers will make software work on XP, 2000 and vista. They wont bother to write a vista-version but we get exactly the same. Not a power system with powerful applications. A power system with everything disabled that didn’t run on the ancient 0.5 GB PC’s. You will have to try if things work each time you change something OR you will never know how it stopped working. Different performance on each system.

If we should develop Longhorn applications on a P3 you bought the new PC for nothing. If your lucky you can even run the application!

Google is diving into OOO Open office, firefox and thunderbird are really nice and Opera is even better, a user friendly Linux OS with 1 GHz will fly compared to the Windows Vista P4 art of state.

Look at msn, outlook, IE ms-word. Doesn’t that look a bit unstable to you? The rest of what they make is the same style of assembly… eh I mean compiler.

The disappointment of Web 2.0

October 24, 2005

Email was invented by Xerox in 1930. In 1987 I was hard coding things in assembly on my commodore 64. lda sta brq and jrs was all I ever needed to make all possible miracle’s happen and even some impossible stuff.

A modem was used to send and receive data in the stone ages and Flickr adds nothing to this experience. It hosts images. Well DUHHH that ain’t original at all!

In the PC stone ages A folder was used to group a group of programs or sort the kinds of data properly. Tags and labels are cool if you’ve failed miserably at sorting things in folders. Only if I didn’t keep my flopy’s with games together I had to read the label.

Now we have google, del.icio.us and Digg do the same thing with the web and sadly fail to even find the documents let alone know what the f*ck things are. This is the right order of words for it: “Whatis” the “Whois”?

quote: eBay, Amazon, anypay, paypall work because LYING and CHEATING carries with it a price to pay.

They want us to believe the big 2.0 WEB will mean total domination for mega dumb multinationals. HAHAHAHAHA

Look at google talk! It’s by far the most ugly chat client ever! Look at Internet explorer! HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS they harvested and LOOK HOW IT LOOKS, LOOK at MSN!!! BWHAHAHAHA!!!! The shit is cheap for 1990 standards can code that in a week or so.

Microsoft had this great lie that all PC’s would be the same after you infect it with the 1000$ OS. That sure got things going. Now google is hiding web-based! They made a few windows applications but Microsoft always made sure it didn’t work. HAHAHA

Google is going for “life inside Internet explorer”. If that doesn’t show [Microsoft does nothing but celebrate it’s victory] I don’t know what does. Google is huge jet fits inside a browser.

I was looking at some Linux distributions (like this one) and think each one of those idiot multinationals could pull it off. Yes, even MS-Linux would be fantastic!

We have all eyes inside the browser but it’s a rather small part of computing. Even software takes a pretty small area of it. We need hardware! The Google mini is nice but useless for the normal user. We need the whole google pc, Microsoft PC etc etc

Googles single card idiocy is a project of the size I would expect from Digg or del.icio.us LOL. “load my bookmarks from a server each time I use em? Are you serious??? Your joking right???”

Google shows text results without tags. Is it still 1960 google?? In 2005 the results should be illustrated with at least an avatar linked to a profile. Fuck! Make a flash version of ur site? duhh – Blogger wont allow sorting a blog (after a few 100 postings the fun is gone) Even Columbus had categories in his journal.

People wearing Walkmans are idiots – the same goes for ipod Walkman. People who don’t talk back are not social. I think they probably don’t know how to use a smart phone.

Web 2.0 should mean governments building feedback systems, governments pushing the envelope on education, lets have the government moderate the description(and tags) of domain registrations. Then the state will supply us with profiles a blog-space a micro wallet and a free market place.

Easy!

WP = Kick ass

October 18, 2005

I’ve always wanted a WordPress blog but was just to impressed with the Blogger image hosting. Now that I’ve made many blogs on blogger to divide the subjects and do a yahoo360 blog as well as an Opera blog. So now that I kind of know why WP is so nice it becomes free.

Great!
