v.— «“What’s the ‘chimp’ factor?” “Haven’t you ever taken pictures of kids and had them immediately run to the camera to see what the picture looked like? Substitute a bunch of curious chimps for the kids. But it’s also used by photographers to refer to themselves (‘I ‘chimped’ the pictures to see if I had to retake some of the shots.’) With film there’s no comparable chimp factor unless you’re taking pictures with something like a Polaroid camera.”» —“Re: Should I erase my memory card after every download?” Usenet: May 30, 2005.
