  1. Next TED discussion: Warren Ellis

    “What I’m talking about is when you have the choice to replace your bollocks with a miniature civilization of intelligent nanos in a crystal substrate, is the dating scene going to be even relevant anymore? Why should I talk to a bird when my balls are better company?”

  2. I think this is a wonderful idea, but the display seems impractical. I think a hand held device that uses a feature similar to a camera that still recognizes and retrieves the same information would be far more marketable and easier for people to understand and use.

The technology she is demo-ing is available today with barcode scanning and applications in use for them already. Granted, it’s not as physically engaging as the fun caps, but we’ve made this with fingers, a web-cam and a flash (yes flash) algorithm for our parties.

    I would say for her solution she still needs to grasp the concept of the emerging semantic web for a more robust solution.

  4. Can i just say i would have this installed the moment it was offered, and am currently in the process of breaking into their headquarters to get mine?
