After some prodding from host Loic Le Meur, he conceded that there are some “really interesting things going on” in video. But he didn’t cite the startups I mentioned. Instead, he talked about Cinemagram, a mobile app that lets you animate photos, GIF-style. Maybe some new feature like that are coming for the startup that Facebook bought? He said last year that video-ish updates could be coming.


What happens to socialcam, video et. al if instagrm gets "video-ish" right?

I'd like to think that Socialcam's spamminess will come back to hurt them.

So much for that prediction. Sold to Autodesk for $60 million.

Meanwhile, I'm addicted to Cinemagram! It's really, really good!
