Tin Eye

I caught wind yesterday of a very cool new image search engine called TinEye. Actually TinEye refers to its self as a "reverse image search engine." With Google you type in a word and hope to find an applicable image. Tineye works by actually examining the image, and then running it through it's servers and finding similar or like images that are on the web. At this point they have only crawled a small part of the web. 1 billion images! Their goal is to eventually crawl and stay current with the entire content of the web. It's worth checking out. What it means is that soon anyone who has a web site with images, which these days is almost everyone, will be able to regularly track and follow their images to see where they end up on the web. Let the games begin!
