Palming off an idea 

Normally, this is the sort of trivium I would put over on my Vox blog, but this could be an idea for an enterprising web developer out there, hence its appearance here. At least one with a bent toward such things.
   We all know that some scanners can handle things like (Lucire’s is at left), which store quite a bit of information these days. MyFonts’ WhatTheFont program is pretty reliable at identifying typefaces. So how about palms?
   This is one of my father’s ideas after we began talking about how much a QR code could store. His reply: ‘What about a palm? [If you believe in it,] it stores a lot more.’
   There are plenty of books about out there, that it seems logical that people could scan their palms and have an automatic reading. And before palmists out there get upset and say the readings cannot be done by machine, of course such a site would have a disclaimer and encourage people to get their palms read by a professional—the same as a medical diagnosis site might.
   It could be a bit of a hit, or it could be a niche site that sits around, waiting to be discovered.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
