... On Behalf Of BillK

>Especially as coincidentally Facebook is rolling out its own face
recognition software...So, if it works, every photo of you on Facebook will
be tagged with your name. Not just your own photos, but photos uploaded by
anyone, even those you don't know about...If it doesn't work, ...What could
possibly go wrong?  BillK

If it doesn't work is not as bad as if it does work.  A business competitor
could slam Facebook with pictures identified as you doing such things as
drawing cartoons of Joseph Smith for instance.  One could be slain by
radical Mormons in such a way that the one ultimately responsible for the
murder pays nothing and faces zero risk of legal repercussions.  

But other than that, this sounds cool.
