I got started With Software And Tools blogging

by tejaaa In reply to Tejas' Interesting Links

Finally I got started blogging on Software And Tools. I started by making a post on The Web Tools section on there about Riya. The tool that I am testing at the moment and having fun. I will be blogging here as well as on Software And Tools site. You might find that I might be cross posting for quite a while.

Identity Issue at Riya

by tejaaa In reply to Tejas' Interesting Links

::HorsePigCow:: life uncommon: Me, Myself and I(dentity)
I was reading Tara?s post and Yes, I have the same issue with the existing identity structure at Riya Photo search service for now.
Just to give you all a bit of background, at the moment, Riya manages addresses for a user by his or her email address. It recognises the faces for a user and links that data to an account based on an email address. So now the problem is, one user can have more than one email address that he/she might give out to different users. He might give abc@xyz.com to one User A and User B might give xcv@asd.com email address for the same user. And User A?and User B will use those email addresses respectively to recognise the person on Riya.?Now the way I see from Tara?s post and using the system (Riya), I don?t think Riya at the moment understands that both different email addresses are of the same person (through face recognition) and merge the facial information about these person. If this was the case than when more pictures of the same User are uploaded on the site, it will take less time to train Riya to recognise the face of that person.
I think there should be a better way to identify the person and have a global identity no matter how many email addreses he/she might is recognised by. Here is what I think can be done (this is all based on the information I got about Riya): -

We should have a system in place like Plaxo Contact Management system
Initially people can register users by different email address. If it is the same email address than I assume that the problem should be solved
So now the situation is that for a given user ?A? we have many pictures uploaded on the system and is recognised by different email addresses
So now when the user ?A? registers himself on Riya.com , he or she should be given an option of registering all his email addresses
Riya than understands that all the data for the different email addresses is of the same person and merges it together
I think the problem is solved
OR

Riya becomes smart enough to understand that all the data even though stored under different email addresses are of the same person using face recognition technology and merge them together.
The other issue I am facing is when I want to put a name to the face in Riya I have to put an email address for that person.?


?Now as indentified by many others, I might not have an email address for that person or that person might not even have an email address. This is no joke, my uncles and aunties living in remote areas in India don?t know what computers are, how are they??
supposed to have an email address. What should I do about them? I just don?t want to keep on putting fake email addresses for them. But I still want the system to recognise them by their faces! I might go to Geek Dinners, meet people there, take pictures but might not have their email address. But I still want the system to recognise them by their names. So there should be a better alternative to this. Ofcourse I can tag those pictures by the name of the person or something similar, but than this does not solve by purpose. I will have to keep on doing this every time I upload pictures as the system would not recognise the pictures of that person.
?
How about also allowing to recognise the pictures by a group? I might be going out with 100 people quite a few times but don?t want to bother myself recognising all the pictures all the time, but I have created a group for those 100 people. I just might want to add them by groups. So if there are more than certain amount of people in the same group, the photo is automatically?recognised as that group.?Of course again, I can tag those pictures by group name, but might not solve the problem.
More suggestions coming up soon.

Riya Alpha 2 inbound

by tejaaa In reply to Tejas' Interesting Links

Recognizing Deven: Alpha 2 inbound
?Munjal posts about the Alpha release 2 of Riya. I am happy with the fixes. The most important ones for me are the following points:-
?b) Make it work with Firefox - Done - nuff said
c) Don't make email required when I train Riya on a new person - Done
d) The uploader install was confusing and didn't work right. I think we fixed this by making our uploader more explicit (that you are down loading something) and putting the settings for which directory you upload only in the uploader (we had it in two places which was confusing).
e) Many of you didn't like that we locked you out of your account until the upload was complete. Now that is fixed
The uploader sucked big time. I only wish that it would not take the same amount of RAM and processing power this time. As normal users would not prefer to keep their systems running over night and client consuming more than 50% of processor power is still not acceptable. Lucky I got 2 GB RAM on my computer, how many users do you think will have that kind of RAM installed on their home systems? If the client really needs these kind of resources, what I suggest is you have a mechanism where I can instruct the client to run in low priority when I am using the computer and then crab the resources of my computer in full swing when I am not using it (in other words idle time). Copernic Desktop Tool does this very well.
It?s good that now we won?t be required to enter an email address of the person the first time we are making him recognised to the system (adding his/her face to the system).
Riya had tag clouds for both albums and people before and Munjal mentions in this post that they have removed tag clouds for albums. Ya, I agree that it was too confusing. But how about implementing a feature where people can switch to tag clouds or list mode as per their preference (similar to what del.icio.us has done)?
I hope their new uploader lets me upload photos from my DVD drive or from over a network share this time.Tags: Riya - Photosearch - Munjal Shah - tools - photo<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://www.itejas.com/index.php/2005/11/22/riya_alpha_2_inbound">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Joi Ito's Web: Deconstructing Bloggers
Thomas says that there are three types of blog posting:-

Conversational
Informational
Polemical
I think my blog posts fall into informational category most of the times and will like to work my way towards conversational posts :).<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://www.itejas.com/index.php/2005/11/24/types_of_blog_postings">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Ten Rules for Web Startups by Evan Williams

evhead: Ten Rules for Web Startups
Evan Williams CEO of Odeo writes up a post on ten rules for web startups. After reading it two times, I agree with almost all of them. My favorites are no. 1 and no. 2. Be narrow and be different. It says a lot.<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://www.itejas.com/index.php/2005/11/28/ten_rules_for_web_startups_by_evan_willi">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

I registered a .Name domain

by tejaaa In reply to Tejas' Interesting Links

Last night I registered a .name domain account and the name is http://www.tejaspatel.name and it gets redirected to this domain. As my name and my last name is so common, it's hard to get a domain mame with TLD's like .com,.net etc. I always wanted a domain name in my name, so I got it this time :).

In the future I will see what to do with it. But for now it's secure. I might get domain names in my brothers name as well now.<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://www.itejas.com/index.php/2005/12/03/i_registered_a_name_domain">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>
