Pixsy Visual Search [nanoblog]

I tried out pixsy.com tonight, searching for “lobster roll” of course. Only three of the first 15 hits had anything to do with lobster rolls, and worse, hits 16 through 30 were all photos from the same site site of the same thing, a roll-on/roll-off cargo ship. A personal peeve: They use JavaScript links which don’t degrade gracefully (the links won’t work if JavaScript is disabled), and they broke the back button. Grr. I guess I’m just not a visual thinker. Google’s images search does much better. The first 20 are all relevant, and one of my photos is Number One. I’m just sayin’. It’s not even my best photo, but I’ll take it.
