    THAT'S amazing.. Sincere thanks for that.. Fits into my medical imaging and machine vision interests.

    Love TED -- should spend a little LESS on USMB and more at TED..

    Can you imagine the bill for film and developing? Yikes!

    here's some scenes from my Vacation to the Grand Canyon, 90 trillion photos, cost $2 billion to develop

    A non-profit society dedicated to bringing exceptional research and talent to light. It's MOSTLY science and technology, but some art and humanities as well.

    Seminars are given all over the world and all presentations are archived at TED: Ideas worth spreading.

    You can spend hours there just cruising thru brilliant ideas and futuristic stuff.
    Someone should probably start a TED thread with recommendations.

    Some of my favorites are the World Econ lectures by the guy from Finland. He shows these animated graphs that compares development all around the world.
