For a really text-based, non-visual person, I've been continually surprised by how much innovations in image searching mean to me.

Love using Search by Image to find original sources. How do you use it?

We had a great time with it in a recent search workshop in Oregon. Participants were loving the "find images like this" feature in Google. Brilliant.

I see possibilities in education for social studies, architecture and structural contrasts and comparisons, geometrical concepts, historical figures. How image search works has to stop blowing my mind before I can actually use it with kids. Stay tuned.

I don't think it is all that surprising... Writing is a kind of drawing. Words are pictures that convey specific meanings. Being text-based just means you prefer to get your visuals in a particular format. As with any specialty, this often means you are less able to interpret information that comes in another, impressionistic, format.
