Not many people would have read the SIGGRAPH 2007 paper on “Seam Carving for Content-Aware Image Resizing” (pdf). So I love how the researchers used YouTube to present their ideas. As this post (original source of the story) indicates, Dr. Shamir was immediately hired by Adobe. Cool algorithm and great delivery. Definitely part of the future on how scholarly/research works should be shared with the rest of the community.
