Thankfully, the ability to follow the meandering muse is becoming easier and easier via increasingly powerful smartphones, tablets, and user-friendly production apps.

So, Kahn did what any mathematician / technological envelope-pusher would do: he shoehorned a miniature camera into a Motorola cell phone and—voilà!—on June 11, 1997, Kahn could share pictures of his newborn baby girl, Sophie, with about 2,000 friends and family members.
