Two random reader contributions. From John, MyHeritage is facial recognition technology for photographs.

The Amazing Screw-On Head, a humor comic from Mike Mignola (who
created Hellboy), is being made into an animated series on the Sci-Fi
channel. They have the pilot episode on their website:
It's about this robot-type guy whose head can screw on to bodies. He
works for Abe Lincoln taking care of weird supernatural problems. It's
voiced by Paul Giamatti and the main bad guy is voiced by David Hyde
Pierce, so the acting is good.
Lovecraftian humor and steampunk adventure? I'm there.
