A Conversation With Hunch Cofounder Caterina Fake

What would you do with the openFrameworks and an hour to kill? Would you create an application to detect when you’re smiling and automatically insert “:)” into whatever program is currently running? Theo Watson did, and called it Auto Smiley! :) He released it as open source! :) We can’t possibly have enough smiley icons embedded into our emails and IMs can we? I mean, we all spend all day every day smiling maniacally, right? :) :) :)

I predict it’ll take exactly seven minutes before someone makes Auto Frowney to automatically detect and insert sad clown faces. :(
