The Kodak kiosks at Walmart would not print out pictures of my kids in the tub. Interesting.

You know, per capeta, there’s an awful lot of porn research done at HMC. Yes, that’s what they call it: “research.” A friend of mine worked on a similar project a few years ago, in the same department but completely independent from this work. Interestingly, it was lauded as a “porn finder” rather than a filter. I guess these things happen when you put the CS department in the basement.
