Poolside Fauxtos

Already my e-mail inbox is stocked with "a picture is worth a thousand words" messages with photo attachments involving Alaska governor and vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin. Of course, as "Fauxtography & Gov. Sarah Palin" illustrates, this is a cleverly done photo composite. For more on the computer technology that can be used to spot even the most artful composites, see this Nova profile of computer scientist Hany Farid, which is worth watching despite the testosterone styling of this faculty member by the show's producers.

Update: For more on the pool fauxtos and other Internet Palin-related memes, see Virtualpolitik pal Billy Kimball's "Sarah Palin is Rubber; Barack Obama is Glue."
