After the recent outage with Google services, this email is the definition of irony.  Or if I were more cynical, opportunistic marketing.

Fricking AMAZING: Eulerian Video Magnification for Revealing Subtle Changes in the World http://people.csail.mit.edu/mrub/vidmag/

From four frames of video, highlight someone's pulse. (Obviously, only one of many apps.) via +Nat Torkington's always fabulous "Four Short Links" column on radar.oreilly.com.

This right after I saw a pop piece about a laser being used to detect from your skin color whether you'd been eating your vegetables.. http://t.co/qSz0IQbZ

And of course, a few months ago, Tommy Poggio at the McGovern Institute for Brain Science told me how he is using computer vision to detect signs of depression in laboratory mice.  (One of his colleagues is developing gene therapy for depression, and needed a better way to watch the mice to see if it is working.)

"When [Kepler] found that his long cherished beliefs did not agree with the most precise observations, he accepted the uncomfortable facts; he preferred the hard truth to his dearest illusions. That is the heart of science."

FWIW, this matches my own experience as a CEO and business owner. Tax rates have never influenced my business decisions. In order to pay business taxes, you have to have profits. If you believe enough in your business, you reinvest in your business, and so you don't have all that much profit to tax.  If you have so much profit that you can't find enough things to invest in, taxes are hardly the problem that tax-cut believers would make out.

Taxes hurt, and I don't like to pay them any more than the next guy, but so does exercise, and many other things that we do because we're smarter than to think that what feels good is the right thing.

Wondering if a generation of women got tramp stamps because they watched too much My Little Pony as kids?
