What We’re Watching: All Eyes on EyeEm

Last week, Flo Meissner (EyeEm co-founder) headed to London to honor EyeEm’s nomination at The Europas in the category of Best Mobile or Apps Startup. Last night, he huddled around with the rest of us for the world’s first live, uncut street art photo exhibition curated entirely by mobile users. “We’re not trying to build a tech product,” he told me as the music started, a 30×30 meter graffiti skull appeared on the brick wall in front of us, and everyone looked up from their beers. “It’s all about amateur photographers, people around the world just looking to share what they’re seeing.”

The Crowd: One woman (an LA native) was in town for the week from Paris, where she’s writing a book called “My Jesus Year” (built of 33 chapters, each of which represents a separate revelation about doing the things you’ve always wanted to do). “Will this make it into the book?” I asked her, as we pointed out a couple recognizable graffiti artists in the mix (among them, Blu and Space-Invaders). “Certainly!”
