When I was at the Northrop Research and Technology Center in 1986 we heard about something called the Face Server. We thought that sounded cool so we went around (no kidding) and collected everyone's security badge and scanned it! Workstations were just black and white (no gray) so we had to reduce each photo down to a dot pattern that was still recognizable.



After we did all that, we lost interest, and never actually implemented the Face Server.



Apparently the Face Book is something similar for college campuses.
