Riya getting a makeover, almost ready to search the visual web


Riya, the facial recognition photo site that i've spoken about several times, is in the process of turning itself from a specialized photo storage site into a full visual search engine that intends to be able to take an image and look for all similarities throughout the web.  The founders are slowly rolling out the new Riya by scalling back what information is shown on your personal pages right away and simplifiyin the homepage to look entirely like a search engine.  Now with a very Googlle-esque simplicity, they expect to bring to the table "search by color", "search by cameraphone", "search by similar image", and "search by sketch."
