Let me dedicate the first post on this blog to an extraordinary piece of software I stumbled upon today: MemoryMiner.

Unfortunately, not one of my usual centric sites seems to have noticed it yet. Even more astonishing since MemoryMiner won one of the Best of Show awards at Macworld Expo 2006.

The idea behind MemoryMiner is to link images, persons and places with each other over time. Sounds confusing? Take a look at this amazing demo and you’ll quickly understand what all the fuss is about. Of course, you could use Keywords in iPhoto to implement something, well, not similar, but distantly related on a much simpler level, but Apple really scares the living hell out of anyone trying to actually use them.

One has to admit though that MemoryMiner is a v1.03, and although I’ve seen a lot worse, it has some rough edges. There is a 15-day trial available, and I’d really like to wait for some bugfixes, but today seems to be the last day of the ($45 instead of $60). Bugger…
