Argument 1: SCENARIO I submit a search via Google or Stack Exchange on some topic which I have recently been researching. I know I saw a good answer to my question somewhere - but I just can't remember where. Strangely neither Google, nor Stack Exchange - nor my textually indexed Safari browser history - shows any of the related words that I'm positive were in the context of the material that I had seen.
See the following question and answer which had ultimately been what I was looking for. However, this poster, whether justified, or not.. had posted (relevant and interesting) image content, and subsequently that information was in no way indexed or queryable.
My proposed solution is to run a simple OCR routine on posted images and include that metadata in the scope of the question.
Argument 2: This seems to be a technology / approach that is implemented elsewhere and that provides meaningful added value to users.
For those hooing haawing about the insane processing demands that this would require… I setup a quick test suite using google's open-source Tesseract on my Mac (
brew install tesseract) which I encourage you to try at home ;-)
curl -L http://links.mrgray.com/ocrtest > $PNG
SECONDS=0; /usr/local/bin/tesseract $PNG $TXT
echo "that took approximately $SECONDS second(s)"

Yet they do not accomplish what I must now attempt. My main question is where and how the church must stand to be the witnssing church; that is, what must be the relation between the culture that is the church (and the larger Christian and biblical metaculture the church represents) and those cultures the church indwells, evangelizes, serves? Answering will require all the resources that Christian theology can bring to bear, and not a little help from such as Berger and Bellah as well. Already they have showed us, willy»nilly, that theology is required for the task: they make such ample (and often skillful) use of it, themselves! that took approximately 1 second(s)
Stack exchange is more than welcome to use my computer to handle any excess CPU-time required(if they want to pay for my cable modem, lol).
