No problem, I have a good time thinking about this kind of stuff, always fun to find someone equally interested in the discussion.
OCR stands for Optical Character Recognition, generally you'll hear it in reference to scanners that can turn written letters into editable text. While that's the definition and official use of the term, it's an acronym that gets thrown around whenever we're discussing software that recognizes specific objects/details within images.
In this situation, it would be something like, take a straight-on picture of the nib. Is it bent in a weird way? Are the tines split too much? The software would be able to recognize such things and either make or help inform a decision around condition grading.
On the whiskey front, not to get us on a new tangent, but I recently picked up some Yamazaki 12 and it's overtaken Glenlivet 18 as my favorite highland/smooth whiskey. Would recommend if you can find a reasonably priced bottle.
When will other communities get discussions? Not sure TBH, depends on the response we get in these communities. That said, if you want to make a case for a particular community, hit up my colleagues Kunal, Mike Wilson, and Alex Peterkin, their team owns this project : )
