HI Cory-
Just wanted to thank you for your reply. It is encouraging to hear that it is a good time to enter the field. I will be sure to read blogs and keep abreast of the happenings in UX. I'll also look into the usability analyst certification. All good info to know. Thanks again! Have a great weekend! We finally got some sun here in Seattle, but it will not last for long. Too bad. --Dawn

HI Cory,
I am an aspiring UX designer and heard that you have great UX design experience. So I'm writing to you to see if you would have any suggestions on the kind of skills I would need to be a competitive job candidate. I hope to enter a UX program at the University of Washington next year sometime and would love to return to the islands once I have completed it. --Dawn

Hey Cory, I just took a peek at your blog. I had read about the Cash Flow game in one of Kiyosaki's recent books. If you have the game, I'd love to play it one day. Perhaps we can get a group of TechHui folks together to play.

Yep, I will see you Sunday.

Btw, and I am sure you have already seen this, butMike Arrington has a post on facial recognition photography sites. It's not terribly technically informative but there is some competitive details.

here's the code for the paginator (hat tip to Stuart M. for finding the code):

Hi Cory,

Good meeting you at the GUI meetup yesterday. For facial recognition, have you evaluated Cogntiec?

We've used Cognitec for a number of years and had good results. The SDK was easy to use and it saved us a tremendous amount of time getting to market.

Cognitec focuses on security applications and we used it for video surveillance. However, Cognitec is rock solid and its most recent development efforts have been to optimize the use of megapixel images (which should work quite nicely with photos).

From a user experience, Cognitec should provide very good results from your application. Facial recognition works best at small scale (when I say small I mean thousands or tens of thousands) and for repeat subjects (which is common with photos of family and friends). Also Cognitec's SDK offers a number of parameters that can be quickly and easily adjusted to fine tune to your application's environment, further helping the user experience.

It will, of course, generate some measure of false matches and we found it tricky developing a user interface to handle that. Matching/training was one technique we used. I think you should have more favorable results with matching/training as your smaller/repeat population creates better, quicker results.

Best,

John
