really its "buying" 30 million users + ownership of the most popular photo-sharing social network. facebook loves photos b/c theyre significantly more interesting than links or status updates, as measured by the # of ppl who click on them and the amount of time they spned

wasn't there another identical thing called hipstamatic?

hipstamatic started out as just a camera filter app. they added on social stuff later after instagram took off.

or what max and joe said.

number of instagram users should be getting a big bump up now that they have it for android too, the fact that they have as many users as they do and it was iphone only until last week is kinda crazy

they paid $1 per photograph too

its hilarious b/c its so overvalued, but also because like "one billion" is such a funny number

and only $55 million per filter

hipstamatic could integrate a lot of products (books, prints, postcards) relatively easily. God knows if they'd actually make any money off of them, though.

no this is definitely talked about in the financial press, with the same kind of hedgy language that you probably see before any bubble burts, although tbf this actually isn't really as big a bubble in terms of sheer numbers of ridiculously valued companies.

the other guy who was trying to get me to collapps was using the "fart app" from a while ago (that got bought for like a milli) as his example over and over of what is possible, like it was the pinnacle of apps, or for some reason it was the perfect app to explain every part of his ideas w/

xxp Fortunately I foresaw this and invented a currency called 'snoball dollars' - current exchange rate is about a trillion snoball dollars to the US$.

people talk abt this all the time at least in the tech media, maybe its not as much of a mainstream story because most of these companies are still privately held where the 1st tech bubble was all in the stock market

I don't know if you can call this a bubble, there is srs, srs money in having detailed personal information on every single human in america, but there will be a limited number of winners

I wanted to design a bar bingo app that could be tailored to fit whatever kind of bar you're at

a) I don't know how to program
b) I figured it would have to be social with leaderboards and Foursquare type coupons from bars and shit, but I don't know to do it
c) there are probably already 40 of these

Kiarostami bag (milo z), Monday, 9 April 2012 18:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

hint: the public won't be one of the winners.

they do do doo doo sandwiches (snoball), Monday, 9 April 2012 18:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

well the first internet bubble had the same qualities -- legit value underneath some of it, limited number of winners.

i don't believe in zimmerman (Hurting 2), Monday, 9 April 2012 18:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

also I only hang out in dive bars, so the bingo app would be limited for pretty much everything else

Kiarostami bag (milo z), Monday, 9 April 2012 18:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah but the original internet bubble was built on assuming things about the way people were gonna use the internet that were wayyy out of line w/ how the internet was being used at the time.

er, Instagram not hipstamatic. (but them too)

from what I understand (e.g. reading one article on some camera blog) the Instagram photos aren't good enough to make prints off of. they're just web quality. (might be a bandwidth thing, even at the quality they are now it takes forever to load your feed and you have to have a good connection on your phone)

Hipstamatic photos are saved at higher quality and they do offer prints

so I am newcomer to the Instagram thang and I have a boring tech question oh no

the app on my iPhone keeps wanting me to connect my camera roll to my instagram account

I haven't done this yet because I'm afraid that it's just going to put everything in my camera roll immediately up onto instagram and I don't want to share every pic I've ever taken because some of them are just way ugly or boring or, ahem, private etc.

is there a way to connect the camera roll to instagram but to still allow me as the user to determine which pics flow there and which don't? I hope there is, but for now I'm using a cumbersome app called Gramblr to upload pics from a computer to Instagram so that I can be more selective/more of an editor

IG will only post what you want, it just needs to ask permission to access that part of your phone first

yeah it's just so you don't have to use the camera in IG, you can just take pics like normal and then use IG to upload and edit them if/when you want
