Gift, 2008: Clicks Image Search
Feliz Natal!

Each year, I try to make a gift for the world. Last year it was the Infinite Canvas.

This year, it's the Clicks Image Search.

It's more of a journey than a search. Click the save/thumbs up button on images you like (or are like what you're looking for), and drop/thumbs down the ones that aren't what you want. If you don't see images you want, start with a search.

It develops a model of what you're looking for, and tries to give you more pictures like that.

It's based on tags and a naive Bayes classifier. If you want to see and adjust the model, there's a spot at the bottom. It seems a bit buggy in IE, but it works fine in Firefox.

Try it out, and tell me what you think! http://www.existencia.org/clicks/

No, no, that was *your* gift to the world. It was just my job to see it from the bottom shelf of a Cambridge store to its rightful owner and prophet who could properly show the world its radiance.

Oh yes, of course!
Although i think Robert Kinoshita and Warner Home Video did it a whole lot more effectively.
