    All I can do is input names. There doesn't seem to be any sort of "This is me." option. And if I tag a photo with Me, iPhoto doesn't understand that I'm referring to myself. (ie. it says Me may be in these photos.. not YOU may be in these photos)

    I'm just going to throw this out there but, how about with your name?

    I wish iPhoto 09 connects to your Address Book. :(

    Hmm, these things sound very unappley (wish that was a real word). It surprises me there isn't a way to tag yourself, although I guess it may be catering for multi user accounts or something. Alternatively, as bdp115 said, perhaps you want to use your actual name :p

    Address Book integration would rock.

    Why don't you input "YOU" when it picks your face up, instead of "ME." Then it will say "Is this YOU?" when it recognizes your face.

    I don't really understand how your thinking here:

    Let's say the software picks up your friend BOB SMITH. Ok, so you go to tag this picture and BOB is in it. When it says "UNKNOWN NAME," you type in BOB SMITH (obviously). So i believe common sense would tell you if the software thought BOB was in some other pictures, its would say "Is this BOB SMITH" ("or BOB SMITH may be in these photos") bc BOB SMITH is exactly what you typed in.

    Now, on to you (or me, or whatever you want it to say).

    So, now the software picks your face up in the facial recognition. From what i gathered from your original post, you typed in "ME." So using the logic from the previous BOB SMITH example, obviously everything that the software thinks is you is going to prompt you with "IS THIS ME" (or "ME may be in these photos"). But clearly you want it to say "IS THIS YOU" (or "YOU may be in these photos"). I don't understand how you think you can type "ME" in and expect it to say something different, such as "YOU."

    Forgive me if I misunderstand. No hard feelings intended. Just dont follow the logic.

    I think the most future proof method is to put your full name in. That way when iPhoto gets the smarts you will already be there, as well as integrating with Address Book (if/when they do).
