    • Visual Image Search and Physical Hyperlinks
    • project #1: • Two years ago Paige fell in love. • With a barcode. • QRCodes; a low-fi version of physical hyperlinks
    • Physical Hyperlinks • Physical hyperlink is a neologism that refers to extending the Internet to objects and locations in the real world. • Physical hyperlinking does this by attaching urls to tangible objects or locations.
    • for example
    • • if you can decorate the world with an encoded semiotics - what do you say? • graffiti? criticism? warnings? advertise? outboard memory palaces?
    • • The QRCode acts as a visual semiotic language extending and connecting between things and the internet • What else can do that?
    • project #2: visual search
    • How does it work? • same basic idea as the qrcode project except only now there is no code • We take a photograph of something and find similar images using robot vision techniques • Like a barcode we get back context
    • Such as... • Criticism and praise • Author, description, • History, Medium, era, • Similar looking images • Where to get more • Your longitude,latitude
    • Locative uses • bookmarking places • knowing where your friends are or were • knowing where you are • a landscape like australian song lines
    • Entering mainstream • Tonchidot • Photosynth • Tineye • Spellbinder • Snaptell
    • Implications? • Images used to be mute; how does this alter our relationship, interpretation and construction of images? • Will images supplant words as a way of talking to computers? To each other? • For example see
    • Legal freight trains • If most peoples reality is mediated by a consensual interpretation - one not favorable to brands - how will brand owners respond?
    • And who owns our (augmented) reality?
    • Code is law • Copyright owners may over-eagerly scour the web looking for theft - reducing everybody elses vocabulary. • Having a power doesn’t mean we should always use it.
    • finding a balance • How do we avoid being overzealous one way or the other? • How can we protect free speech? • How do we protect fair use?
    • Our thoughts • Foster an open image commons • Like Wikipedia • Associates images with meta-data • Protects common interest • Prevents undue private control
    • Building it • Add photographs • Document them • Creative Commons Licensing • Let anybody (not just Google) handle search requests
    • • Become conscious of your images
