Is That Picture Really You?

Thursday, August 21st, 2008

Next time you go searching for that certain special someone, for the night, on craigslist, you can see if the picture they give you is for real or not. Tin Eye is an image search engine that uses an image as the search term, rather than words. It does an amazing job of finding the handful of people who’ve bothered to re-host some of my pictures, instead of just hot-linking to them like the other 2000+ myspace pages do. If only they indexed all the personal ads. Still, I suspect some people are going to get exposed as frauds anyways, once words of Tin Eye hits the e-streets.
