Guest Speaker: Mike Liebhold

Posted By: M Davis

I was intrigued by what Mike Liebhold had to say. He provided insight into a lot of exciting new developments that we can look forward to into the not so far away future. One aspect that really stuck with me was the clarity in which images will appear on our computers. I could not believe the picture that he showed us of France. It was remarkable how picturesque it looked. Having once worked in a photo department, I remember assisiting customers print images off of their cameras or making copies of an already existing picture. The quality of those reprints were awful compared to a- at the time- normal negative print. Having to have been so concerned about picture quality I really find it remarkable how far we have come in such a short amount of time.

Another thing that caught my attention was the tool to pull up images in which you are looking for on a computer map. Being one always in need of assistance in finding my final destination, this new feature that Mike presented will help me greatly in the future. I have always wanted to get a solid sense of where I am going before I drive there and this new technology that was presented will greatly help people like me feel more confident to explore what is around us.

In conclusion, I thought that Mike presented a thorough presentation of what exciting new technologies we get to look forward to seeing in the near future. I marvel at times like these at how far we have come and how quickly we have gotten there.
