Google and its New Image Searches

Click here to read the full commentary article on Google’s new/refined image search process.

“I did a Google search for the image” has become a standard phrase I hear a lot. It is said without thought of image quality (which often is why I am asking where the image was sourced from, in hopes of getting a higher resolution image to work with), ownership or copyright issues. Recently, Google has revised its image search display process to simplify the process. For presenters, this may be helpful, but I can definitely understand the loss of website recognition and ease of “borrowing” images.

Example of the “old” Google search results (shows source website in background):

Here is what is seen from a Google image search today (shows only image, mage specs, and related images):

Is This Dangerous – or Bad?

AV equipment is pretty amazing. It is shipped all over the country, connected-unconnected continuously (unlike the cable monitor on your desktop that was connected once and then ignored for its life) and usually setup and used in fairly dark venues. With all of this use in harsh environments, I get to see some pretty spectacular uses and failures.

This poor cable has met the end of its life (although it was setup for me to connect one of my show computers too). And just like in “A Christmas Story,” this may be a scary power setup.

Guy Kawasaki and Me

At a recent show, the keynote presenter was Guy Kawasaki, who remains a fantastic speaker. I did some refinement of his presentation slides, made sure the multimedia worked in PowerPoint, enjoyed his talk, and received a very nice thank you for the effort.
