  • Promiscuity or Private Groups: Mobile Photo Sharing

    by Mayank Mehta and Louis Gray

    We all know photo sharing is nothing new - it's been around as long as photos have been around and that's a long long time! So what's all the buzz around mobile photo sharing now? Are people all jumping on the bandwagon to share their mobile photos? Instagram just passed 1M users within 3 months of their launch. Path introduced somewhat controversial private group sharing with 50 friends limit. And LiveShare by Cooliris just launched the first flexible private group sharing service for photos. Which brings us to question, are users more likely to resort to private streams? Is that where we are headed - small, intimate groups? What does it mean for the overall social graph(s) we have been building for the past years?

    Come and join in on the discussion around mobile photo sharing, the hottest topic in Silicon Valley.

  • Cultural Protectionism: Image Use at Burning Man

    by Rosalie Barnes and Andie Grace

    Burning Man – aided by volunteers from the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Creative Commons -- spent 2010 updating their terms of use as they relate to photo/media policies, amidst a wave of public attention to the desert event's unorthodox image use rules. They've incorporated fair use, Creative Commons licensing, and human readable language, but still maintain the right to use copyright to take down images in violation of their terms of use. Is this annual desert event a microcosm of creative culture or a copyright clusterf—ck? Anything goes at Burning Man--except when you've got a camera in your hand.
