Combining things in new ways

Many times, doing research is a matter of putting together existing things in a new way that nobody thought before. 

I saw this Ted Talk given Blaise Agüera y Arcas, the architect of Microsoft's Bing Maps, showing the integration of live information (not just photos, but also live video) with maps in amazing ways. Given the advances in computing power and networks we havebeen seeing, there are lots of amazing things to be seen in the near future. It's about 8mins long, but worth the watch.

If only people got that sense of amazement when I presented my work... :)
