One of the many reasons I love Google

This is a picture of my bathroom here in China. Nothing special really (other than the fact that I moved into a really nasty apartment with a nasty bathroom). Nothing special I thought.
This is why Google is so cool.

I recently upgraded Picasa to the newest version. I decided to go through and use Picasa to organize some of my contacts with faces. It was when I was doing this that Picasa brought up this photo for me to tag. My initial response was that Picasa was crazy, but after looking at the smaller thumbnail, I realized it totally does look like a face.

I love you Google. 

About McKay Christensen

After having lived in Oregon, Alaska, and China for the past 10 years doing landscape design and English teaching, I have returned to my home state of Utah and currently work for a growing tech company.

In my free time I enjoy working on my TutorialGeek.net website where I post tutorials and reviews (and anything else I think is geeky) and I also like to write songs for my Super English Kid Youtube channel.

My favorite things to do include anything with my wife and son. Hiking, camping, and photography (or anything else outdoors). Playing Ultimate Frisbee or Ping Pong. Listening to 60s, 70s, or 80s, music. 

Feel free to contact me using my contact page. I would love to hear from any of you!


  1. because you fear the privacy implications of mass face recognition and you're glad that they suck at it?

  2. Actually, I honestly do love Google. I probably don't care as much about privacy as I should. I just thought it was funny that Picasa was able to interpret my bathroom as a face. It did that with a couple of other random pictures as well that look a lot less like a face.
