The Reinvention of the Camera →

Evan Spiegel:

People wonder why their daughter is taking 10,000 photos a day. What they don’t realize is that she isn’t preserving images. She’s talking. […]

It’s not about an accumulation of photos defining who you are. It’s about instant expression and who you are right now. Internet-connected photography is really a reinvention of the camera. And what it does is allow you to share your experience of the world while also seeing everyone else’s experience of the world, everywhere, all the time.

Even though consumers are no longer "wowed" by camera improvements on smartphones, the internet-connected camera is more important than ever.
