[ideas] Random thoughts in the last couple of days.

I'm in Winnipeg for niteskye's sister's wedding. This one was beautiful, relaxed, and fun. The ceremony was rained on a little, but everyone pulled through with a smile.

Two questions that have occurred to me in the last couple of days:

Why do we still have to pass around the cameras and take the same picture several times so everyone can get a copy? What design and technology problems would have to be solved to be able to share photos among cameras?

What would happen if two people speaking different languages could have an IM conversation by having each message translated on the fly by Google?
