Cool image search engine
So, while working diligently on my syllabi (koff! koff!) for the upcoming new semester I just happened to stumble upon this very useful image search engine (and subsequently lost quite a few hours to playing with it--sooo much more interesting than updating bibliographies!).
It's called Tin Eye and, according to their "About me" blurb:
TinEye is a reverse image search engine. You can submit an image to TinEye to find out where it came from, how it is being used, if modified versions of the image exist, or to find higher resolution versions.
They have some interesting search results listed here.
For me, this is an easy way to track memes, or to find out where a particular image originated (to check on photoshopped details etc.).
