I’m in San Francisco for Maker Faire right now and among all the craziness (good craziness), I get an alert that Jason Gessner mentioned me on Google+. He was saying that the Descriptive Camera got a mention on NPR’s Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me. My jaw dropped. I absolutely love that show, though I’ll admit it’s been a while since I’ve listened. At the first opportunity I had (much later due to that craziness I was just talking about), I pulled it up online. The camera was mentioned in the beginning of the Listener Limerick segment:
Taking snapshots is old, so what’s next?
Modern camera tech isn’t vexed.
It gives one thousand words
For an image that’s blurred.
My new camera prints out a text.
As you can imagine, I’m absolutely delighted by this. You can listen to the clip here.
