TED

Great ideas

If you’re unfamiliar with this logo, I think you’re in for a treat. TED(Technology, Entertainment, and Design) is a group that, among other things, holds an annual conference where some fairly savvy folks present new ideas, technology, and so on, about topics ranging from self-aware robots to string theory. They’ve a fairly large library of videos since the last time I visited, so it’s well worth bookmarking to go back and visit. 

I was talking to a friend of mine this weekend about the video below and doing a fairly horrible job of articulating just how cool the Photoshynth project is. Check it out, but afterwards you might want to swing by the actual Photosynth site. The video is from last year and from the look of things it seems like they’ve made some cool strides.

My daughter is just a bit over one now and watching the video I can’t help but wonder what incredible things are in store for her. But, for all that, some days I really miss Atari.
